Debarment Information

New York State Labor Law sets a five-year ban on bidding or award of public work projects to:

  • Contractors;
  • Sub-contractors;
  • Successors; and/or 
  • Substantially owned or affiliated entities

who have been debarred for violations of Article 8 or Article 9.

Workers' Compensation Law prohibits for one year for each violation any:

  • Person or
  • Entity substantially owned by that person 

from bidding on or being awarded any public work contract or subcontract with:

  • The state;
  • Any municipal corporation; and/or
  • Any public body.

For a felony conviction, the ban is five years for each conviction.

Where the Workers' Compensation Board (WCB) is listed as the "Agency" on the result of a debarment search, WCB has ordered the debarment of that individual and/or entity.  If you have any questions on these entries, please call WCB at 1-866-546-9322.
