  • NFIB/Oklahoma 2015 Legislative Victories

    Here's a look at some of NFIB/Oklahoma's victories in the 2015 session of the state legislature:

    Unemployment reform

    NFIB supported legislation that would improve the unemployment system in Oklahoma by:
    • Creating a new employer portal that allows business owners to proactively protest claims of unemployment for employees that were fired for cause
    • Setting a lower, flat rate for unemployment premiums for new Oklahoma businesses.

    Lawsuit protection

    Supported legislation that allows employers to give a hiring preference to an honorably discharged veteran without fear of lawsuit. 

    'Ban-the-box' legislation

    Opposed legislation that would prohibit employers from considering the criminal history of a job applicant. NFIB was  successful in keeping the legislation from being heard.

    Minimum wage 

    Opposed legislation that would increase the minimum wage in Oklahoma beyond the federal mandated amount.
