In the late 1980s, a joint project between the states of Oklahoma, Pennsylvania and the Dallas office of KPMG Peat Marwick was conducted between Scranton, PA, Oklahoma City and Dallas, being that the workers compensation laws of the 2 states were similar enough to make a joint project feasible.
With the workers compensation laws of the states of Pennsylvania and Oklahoma being as similar as they were, our Dallas KPMG Peat Marwick consulting practice won a joint contract. The work was done in 3 locations, Scranton, PA, Oklahoma City, OK, and Dallas, TX.
