All employers in the State of Oklahoma are required to have a work injury compensation under the Workers’ Compensation Act. Workers’ compensation benefits pay for the employee’s work-related injuries or illnesses. This also serves as the employer’s protection against lawsuits.
Workman’s compensation became a mandatory law in most states in the United States to give the employees access to quality medical services when they get injured while at work and financial assistance when the job-related injury or illness caused them to miss work, or worse to suffer from disability.
The workers’ comp policy pays for the medical expenses including physical rehabilitation and lost income when an employee meets an accident or contract an occupational illness because of his or her work regardless of who is at fault. Furthermore, this covers the medical supplies, procedures, and other treatments necessary to cure the patient medical condition. There is also a vocational rehabilitation offered to employees returning to work or wanting to find a new job despite their disability.
Lost wages are also compensated by this accident insurance. It recompenses 70% of the employee’s weekly wage prior to injury up to a maximum amount determined by the Oklahoma Workers’ Compensation Commission.
Fines and Penalties
In Oklahoma, full-time and part-time employees can have access to a workers’ compensation benefits. But that is if their employers are faithful to the law and makes sure that the premium payment for the policy is made consistently.
The State has a directive that employers who will violate the law will be charged of up to $1,000 per day of every day uninsured.
