Industrial Board of Appeals


The New York State Industrial Board of Appeals (IBA) was created by the Legislature in 1975 as an independent review agency with the primary duty of reviewing the validity and reasonableness of certain rules, regulations or orders issued by the Commissioner of Labor. The IBA procedures are usually initiated by the filing of a petition by a concerned party with the Board within 60 days of the issuance of the commissioner’s rule, regulation or order. The IBA then conducts a formal administrative hearing where evidence is taken upon which the Board will rely in issuing its decision.
