The Oklahoma Workers Compensation Commission is the agency responsible for handling claims of injured workers. Oklahoma workers whose claims are in dispute with their employer file a claim with the commission in order to get the case resolved in a timely manner.
The new administrative system will take effect February 1, 2014. This system will be beneficial to both workers and employers. It will be faster, which allows workers to return to work sooner. And it will lower premiums on workers compensation insurance for employers thereby creating new jobs in Oklahoma’s economy.
