In this episode, Greg Lois and Christian Sison discuss the guidance from the Board regarding general releases in Section 32 settlements in New York Workers’ Compensation claims.

In this episode, Greg & Christian talk about:

  • What the Workers’ Compensation Law says about general releases and waivers of claims outside Workers’ Compensation;
  • Whether General Releases are now disallowed;
  • The impact of the new Board guidance on the releases you have already obtained;
  • What defense counsel and risk professionals will need to do now to protect their clients.
