SB1062 replaced Title 85 of Oklahoma state law by establishing an administrative workers’ compensation system and on option for employers to provide benefits outside of the state system. The legislation created Title 85A that outlines the three key areas of the state’s new workers’ compensation system. Those areas include:
- The Administrative Workers’ Compensation Act found in sections 1-106 (the “Administrative Act”);
- The Oklahoma Employee Injury Benefit Act found in sections 107-120 (the “Option”); and
- The Workers’ Compensation Arbitration Act found in sections 121-148 (the “Arbitration Act”).
