Stop Work Orders

WCL §141-b states that a business may be issued a stop work order (which requires the immediate cessation of all business activities) if workers' compensation coverage is not in place or if there is any outstanding debt owed to the Board. Receipt of a stop work order may lead to debarment from any State, municipal or public body Public Works contract or subcontract for 1 year (5 years for felony conviction).
