Three “Acts” of Title 85A: Administrative WC Act changes the nature of OK’s WC system from a judicial structure (one that expected injured employees to take their employers to court) to an administrative one (in which the vast majority of claims flow through bureaucratic channels) (85A-1-125.); WC Arbitration Act introduces an alternative dispute resolution process for WC (85A-300-328.); and OEIBA introduces a new “Oklahoma option” (OKO) as an alternative to WC (85A-200-213.).
