The ombudsman's office was created by the Oregon Legislature to be an independent advocate for Oregon's injured workers. They can help workers informally resolve any problems or disputes that might arise between the parties involved in workers' claims and can answer your questions about the workers' compensation system. There is no charge for these services.
The Workers' Compensation Division (WCD) is the state agency that administers, regulates, and enforces the laws and administrative rules governing the Oregon workers' compensation system. This website provides information for workers about workers' compensation and filing a claim for benefits.
