Minnesota Department of Labor & Industry Adopts New Workers’ Compensation Schedules

by | News, Workers Compensation Defense | 0 comments

In Minnesota, benefit levels, fees for claimants’ counsel, and reimbursement levels for medical providers in the workers’ compensation system are set by statute. The statute mandates that each year, the Minnesota Department of Labor & Industry review and set the rates for all three of these charges to employers applicable to workers’ compensation cases where it can be shown an employee has suffered a work-related injury arising within the scope and course of her/his employment.

As part of her Workers’ Compensation Defense practice, Brownson  Norby, PLLC Paralegal and Records Specialist Stephanie K. Brekke maintains a sophisticated knowledge and database of these complex rates to insure that Brownson  Norby client employers receive a defense based upon the most complete data available.

The new rate schedules are effective October 1, 2018
