Workers' compensation assessments for insured employers in New York will amount to 13.8% of their premiums next year, a decrease from 18.8% this year, because of the state's move to streamline its assessment system, according to the New York Workers' Compensation Board. The decrease will mean $300 million in savings for these firms, the board said. "The previous assessment system was overly complicated, cumbersome and expensive," the board said in a statement.
