Workers Compensation Safety Group

The NYSBA and Gilroy Kernan Gilroy have collaborated to form a proposed Workers Compensation Safety Group, which is an exclusive benefit to NYSBA members.

Workers Compensation is a statutory coverage breweries must secure to protect their employees. Standard market pricing is inconsistent and no dominant insurance carrier for this type of protection exists in NY. This program is designed to be competitive. As the program matures, the potential for the group to earn a dividend is an additional cost saving benefit.
