What you need to know about the Oklahoma Supreme Court salary database
Oklahomans are in the middle of a court-related salary dispute and a court reporter is reporting the situation.
The Oklahoma Supreme court has a salary dispute with the Oklahoma Bureau of Labor and Industries, the Oklahoma attorney general’s office said on Friday.
The salary dispute stems from a settlement in which the BOLI agreed to pay the Oklahoma Attorney General’s office more than $9 million in fines for the nonpayment of the state’s minimum wage.
The BOLA has been ordered to pay $6.3 million in back wages to the Oklahoma Employment Security Agency.
The court reporter, who is not authorized to speak publicly on the matter, said the BLS had agreed to the non-payment but the BIL’s lawyers had not yet filed the requested documents to the court.
He said that the Bilas lawyers had also sent letters to the BOP and the Oklahoma Office of Administrative Hearings asking for an explanation.
The court reporter said that if the Bils lawyers could not get an explanation, they would be filing the requested papers with the court on Thursday.
The reporter said the court was considering filing an appeal with the U.S. Supreme Court.
A number of other states have wage disputes with the Blls, including Arizona, Colorado, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and Wisconsin.
A separate dispute has also erupted between the Oklahoma BIL and the Bols attorneys.
