Minnesota Workers Compensation Retaliation Attorney

Workers Compensation Retaliation in Minnesota

Minnesota law obligates employers to pay for an employee’s medical treatment of an injury incurred on the job, as well as compensation for the time spent off work while the employee is recovering from said injury.

Some employers unlawfully terminate employees who seek workers’ compensation (also known as “workman’s compensation”, or “workers’ comp”), in attempt to avoid paying for continuing medical treatment, or to avoid paying the employee’s salary for an extended period of time.  Certain employers also attempt to dissuade employees from filing a claim with workers’ compensation, or even go as far as interfering with their employees’ efforts to file a claim.

Minnesota has laws in place to protect its’ citizens in the workforce from retaliation if they file a claim for workers’ compensation benefits.  Minnesota Statute 176.82 protects its’ citizens in the workforce from retaliation based termination when an employee attempts to, or successfully, files a workers’ compensation claim.

  • Your employer has requested that you not file a workers’ compensation claim, or advised you not to seek medical attention after reporting a workplace injury.
