Changes in workers’ compensation laws affect employee benefits

The nation has kept an eye on the 2013 Oklahoma workers’ compensation reform law as it wound its way through the justice system. In September 2016 the Tulsa World notes that the Oklahoma Supreme Court struck down parts of the law that allowed companies to provide benefit plans on their own while choosing to “opt out” of the typical workers’ compensation plans most other states have in place currently. While there are political implications, many workers’ day-to-day lives are potentially affected by these changes as well, and not everyone likes the changes.

People in Oklahoma who work in jobs and industries known to be highly dangerous should not expect to be injured in worksite accidents simply because of these risks. Instead, they should be able to feel confident that their employers and management teams properly adhere to all safety regulations, train all workers in the right procedures and enforce following those procedures.
