The ordinance codified in this article is adopted by the Karuk Tribe, a federally recognized Indian tribe (“Tribe”) in compliance with Section 12.6(a) of the Compact.

The Tribe, exercising its sovereign regulatory powers, declares that all work-related injuries, illnesses, and deaths sustained by employees of the Karuk Tribe’s gaming operation and gaming facility (collectively “Gaming Enterprise”) are withdrawn from private controversy, and shall be addressed pursuant to the provisions of this article. This article is intended to establish procedures to administer and define the Gaming Enterprise’s self-funded workers’ compensation program, in a manner that is fair to both employees and the Gaming Enterprise. [Res. 19-R-083 § 2, 7/18/2019.]
