A very important ruling in Oklahoma has helped proct the rights of injured workers.
You can read the entire article here.
"The 2013 legislation gave Oklahoma employers the ability to "opt out" of the state workers' compensation system and write their own plans, setting the terms for what injuries were covered, which doctors workers could see, how workers were compensated and how disputes were handled. The statute was backed by the oil and gas industry and retailer Hobby Lobby."
This is a great victory for workers' rights...letting your employer being able to have complete control over your compensation is a terrible risk. More often than not, we find even with normal regulations, employers try and skirt the issue with attempts to low-ball the injured employee with improper compensation benefits. They hope you'll take a quick settlement as a gesture of "oh, look, we're looking out for you"...when in actuality, they're cheating you out of pursuing your rights!
