Oklahoma Business Law: As an employer, am I required to offer my employees benefits?

Q: As an employer, am I required to offer my employees benefits?

A: NO. While many employers offer benefits, Oklahoma has no mandatory benefits law. However, if the employer has an established policy providing for benefits, the employee may or may not be eligible depending upon the employers eligibility criteria. Read your employee handbook for specific policies at your workplace.

On this blog, I write about and try to answer practical Oklahoma legal questions. My focus and most experience is in estate planning and business issues including Oklahoma non-compete law. I make a living as an attorney in the law firm I founded, Cazes Roberts, PLLC in Oklahoma City. I live in Edmond with wife Amy and my two children, Sam (17) and David (9). We live precisely in the path of where the "wind comes sweeping down the plains."
