Date: September 11, 2013

Event: Oklahoma Chapter of the National Electrical Contractors Association

Location: Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

In their attempt to make the state’s workers’ compensation system more efficient and less expensive, the Oklahoma Legislature created a truly unique and nationally significant piece of legislation that offers employers three options for providing workers’ compensation coverage and benefits and for handling claims filed on or after February 1, 2014. Each option comes with its own advantages and disadvantages.

In this presentation, employee benefits attorney Brandon Long discusses which option provides the most positive impact to employers’ bottom lines while ensuring employees are properly compensated for their on-the-job injuries in a timely manner.
