Commission launches website

The Oklahoma Workers' Compensation Commission has launched its official website, www.wcc.ok.gov. The website is designed to inform and assist claimants, business leaders and industry professionals, as well as provide links to other relevant information. The Oklahoma Workers' Compensation Commission is a new agency created by legislation adopted last year. The Oklahoma Supreme Court upheld the measure. The commission is charged with implementing an administrative style workers' compensation benefit system. Beginning next week, the Workers' Compensation Court will be known as the Court of Existing Claims.
