Terms Used In New York Laws > Workers' Compensation > Article 10

  • Attachment: A procedure by which a person's property is seized to pay judgments levied by the court.
  • Board: shall mean the workmen's compensation board. See N.Y. Workers' Compensation Law 302
  • Chairman: shall mean the chairman of the workmen's compensation board. See N.Y. Workers' Compensation Law 302
  • Civil defense volunteers: shall include those members of the civil defense forces under the provisions of the state defense emergency act who are volunteer persons serving without compensation in the personnel of volunteer agencies. See N.Y. Workers' Compensation Law 302
  • Commission: shall mean the state civil defense commission created by article three of the state defense emergency act, and "state director" shall mean the New York state director of civil defense appointed under the provisions of said act. See N.Y. Workers' Compensation Law 302
  • Continuance: Putting off of a hearing ot trial until a later time.
  • Dependent: A person dependent for support upon another.
  • Equitable: Pertaining to civil suits in "equity" rather than in "law." In English legal history, the courts of "law" could order the payment of damages and could afford no other remedy. See damages. A separate court of "equity" could order someone to do something or to cease to do something. See, e.g., injunction. In American jurisprudence, the federal courts have both legal and equitable power, but the distinction is still an important one. For example, a trial by jury is normally available in "law" cases but not in "equity" cases. Source: U.S. Courts
