Workers’ Compensation Division - DCBS > Web site
Oregon’s workers’ compensation system was created in 1913, with major reforms enacted in 1990 and 1995. The Workers’ Compensation Division administers and enforces Oregon’s Workers’ Compensation Law to ensure that employers provide coverage for their workers, provide treatment and benefits to help injured workers return to work as quickly as possible, and resolve disputes as quickly, fairly and with as little litigation as possible. The division facilitates injured workers’ early return-to-work through incentive programs funded through the Workers’ Benefit Fund; helps resolve medical, vocational, disability and other disputes; and provides consultation, training and technical services to people and businesses within the system.
