The Oklahoma Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that a worker was “acting in the course and scope of his employment” when he fell while leaving work, and therefore can receive workers compensation benefits. Rodney Stanley Brown worked at Oklahoma City-based Claims Management Resources as a claims adjuster. On March 25, 2014 Mr. Brown fell from an interior stairwell while leaving and injured his left knee. Mr. Brown was clocked out and leaving the office when the injury took place, according to court documents.
