ABSTRACT
This article reports on the decision of the New York State Legislature to enact several changes in its workers' compensation laws in 1984. Perhaps most significant was the enactment of Chapter 659 of the Laws of 1984. The new law eliminates all previous time limits that governed how long after exposure a disabling injury could occur to be considered compensable. Instead, the new law imposes a discovery statute of limitations for the filing of all occupational disease claims. The Legislature also increased the Workers' Compensation Board budget 22 percent to enable the agency to computerize operations.
