WC OverviewOklahoma has a no-fault system workers’ compensations system. That means it doesn’t matter if an employee caused their own injury by being careless. If they are otherwise eligible, they are entitled to benefits. However, there are some exceptions.
- Domestic or household employees with less than $10,000 in payroll annually
- Agricultural or horticultural employees with less than $10,000 in payroll annually
- Licensed real estate sales and brokers
- Employees covered under federal laws
- First aid
- Crutches and Prosthetics
WC PayoutsYour worker’s comp insurance must pay for your employee’s medical treatment from day one for any work-related injury. Work-related illnesses are also covered under workers’ compensation law. Illnesses or conditions caused by exposure to harmful conditions (such as mold) or products (such as caustic chemicals) are all covered. If your employees are injured in this way at work in Oklahoma, they may be entitled to benefits under workers’ compensation law.
