Is the hiring problem actually the fault of HR departments?

New York State’s workers’ compensation laws require that employers continuously provide for workers’ compensation benefits for all employees. If people are under the employer’s direct control, generally including day labor, leased employees, borrowed employees, part-time employees, unpaid volunteers and most subcontractors, the person providing direction is considered the employer. Employers who don’t carry insurance are subject to severe penalties and can be prosecuted, as well as being liable for lost wages and the cost of medical care for injured workers. In your case, this is now a complicated legal matter and the recourse is to speak to an attorney.
