The Society of New York Workers’ Compensation Bar Association was established in 1945. The Association was founded as a bipartisan organization comprised of attorneys representing all parties to workers’ compensation claims: claimants, self-insured employers, third party administrators, insurance carriers, and others who are affiliated with the New York State Workers’ Compensation system. The purpose of the organization is to identify issues that affect the administration of the Workers’ Compensation Law and attempt to offer suggestions for the remediation of these issues in a fair and impartial manner. In addition, the Association is involved in educating persons unfamiliar with the complexities of the Workers’ Compensation Law.

The Association is also involved in fund raising for charity. This year represents the Association’s 17th annual golf and tennis fund raiser for pediatric cancer research on behalf of the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Through the generosity of its members and sponsors, the Association has raised over $500,000 since the inception of its annual outing.
