Man threatened by co-worker's husband wins workers' compensation


There are a lot of gray areas when it comes to determining eligibility for workers' compensation benefits. Each state has its own laws and while a physical injury that happens in the workplace is typically covered, the courts are still divided when it comes to mental issues such as stress. A New York man is celebrating a victory after the New York Supreme Court's Appellate Division awarded him workers' compensation for stress inflicted by a co-worker's husband's plot to murder him.

Work-related accident at national site exposes workers to risk

Some of America's most iconic landmarks are located in New York. These landmarks often represent successes in our nation's past and conjure positive sentiments in support of loyalty.

However, many are quite old and are in need of consistent maintenance and upkeep.

Man dies from construction injuries at New York complex

Students bring a lot of value to small businesses in New York. With no classes during the summer, students can work flexible schedules.
