NEW METHOD FOR DISTRIBUTION OF WCB SUBJECT NUMBER ANNOUNCEMENTS
Date: May 14, 2003
As part of the Workers' Compensation Board's continuing review of its policies and procedures, and with the goal of more efficient and timely communication, after this release the Board will no longer use the US Postal Service as our method of distributing subject number announcements. Instead of receiving mailed paper copies, parties will be made aware of future Board announcements in the following
- The Board's Web site - Announcements will be posted on the Board's web site, www.wcb.ny.gov, as soon as they are issued. Please visit the site periodically and check "Board Releases (subject numbers)" for both the latest information and any previously released announcements you may need to reference.
- Postings at Board Offices - New announcements will be prominently displayed at the Board's district offices, Customer Service Centers and hearing sites.
- E-mail - In the near future, the Board will be able to send your organization the latest Board announcements by e-mail. More information and a registration form will be available on our web site when this service is available.
