ALBANY, N.Y. – Advocates will rally in Albany Tuesday against Scaffold Law and request action and reform of the absolute liability standard of the law.
Opponents find fault with the laws "provision that drives up the cost of every public school and private construction project in the state because building owners and contractors are held ‘absolutely liable' for ‘elevation related injuries,' regardless of the facts of the case of the real liability for the injury."
The event will be held from 8:30 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Empire State Plaza Concourse.
341 Northern Blvd., Albany, NY 12204
