Oklahoma Workers Compensation Law to Lead the Way
In May of this year, the governor of Oklahoma signed a law that will allow employers to choose options for injured employee benefits other than workers compensation insurance. No doubt Oklahoma will be closely observed by other states that are looking for alternative options other than workers compensation insurance.
The new law should enact opportunities for insurance companies to develop innovative products for employers creating competition for workers compensation insurance. Lawmakers and business owners anticipate that these changes will create legitimate options for companies and their workers. To date, Oklahoma’s neighbor, Texas, has developed an opt-out plan for companies, or non-subscribers, and insurance providers are studying how they might develop similar provisions for employers in our state.
Oklahoma Injury Laws
As changes are made in Tulsa and across Oklahoma, it is imperative for workers to remain informed of their rights. Most employers in Tulsa will still have workers compensation coverage until alternatives are available from insurance providers. Hopefully, the new law will benefit employees as well as employers.
