Wage and Hour Division Enters Alliance with NYS Workers' Compensation Board
The alliance will better protect workers for an initial three-year term.
OSHA's Wage and Hour Division has entered an alliance with the New York State Workers' Compensation Board, according to a report.
"Our agencies share a common purpose of helping ensure proper working conditions and benefits for workers in New York. Working together and sharing resources to achieve that common purpose makes sense," said OSHA Regional Administrator Robert Kulick.
The alliance will communicate more efficiently and effectively, as well as promote New York employers' compliance with the laws administered by each agency. Some of the elements of the agreement include: cross-training of agencies' staffs, providing employers and employees with compliance assistance information, and conducting joint investigations.
"We look forward to working with our partners. Our combined efforts will enhance our own resources and ensure increased compliance by employers throughout the state," said Wage and Hour District Director Jay I. Rosenblum.
