NY Work Comp L § 229 (2012) What's This?
 
    §  229.  Posting  of notice and providing of notice of rights. 1. Each
  covered employer shall post and  maintain  in  a  conspicuous  place  or
  places  in  and  about  the  employer's  place  or  places  of  business
  typewritten or printed notices  in  form  prescribed  by  the  chairman,
  stating  that  the  employer  has provided for the payment of disability
  benefits as required by this  article.  The  chairman  may  require  any
  covered  employer to furnish a written statement at any time showing the
  carrier insuring the payment of  benefits  under  this  article  or  the
  manner  in  which  such  employer  has complied with section two hundred
  eleven or any other provision of this article. Failure for a  period  of
  ten  days to furnish such written statement shall constitute presumptive
  evidence that such employer has neglected or failed in respect of any of
  the matters so required.
    2. Whenever an employee of a covered  employer  who  is  eligible  for
  benefits  under section two hundred four of this article shall be absent
  from work due to a disability as defined in subdivision nine of  section
  two  hundred  one  of this article for more than seven consecutive days,
  the employer shall provide the employee with a written statement of  the
  employee's  rights  under  this  article  in  a  form  prescribed by the
  chairman. The statement shall be provided to the  employee  within  five
  business  days  after  the employee's seventh consecutive day of absence
  due to disability or within five business days after the employer  knows
  or  should  know  that  the  employee's  absence  is  due to disability,
  whichever is later.
