Small-business group wants workers' comp reform
For some time now OCPA has made the case—in policy papers and newspaper columns and blog posts—that Oklahoma’s workers’ compensation system is so badly broken that it’s time to try a new approach—one that is primarily administrative, with a more limited role for the judiciary.
In a column published last week in The Oklahoman, Jerrod Shouse, the Oklahoma state director for the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), says that NFIB members in Oklahoma also favor going to an administrative system. He says this “fresh approach will help control costs for small businesses, which, in turn, will allow our small businesses to create jobs and grow the economy.” I encourage you to read his column here.
