What Does Minnesota Law Say About Your Rights?
Minnesota law guarantees that injured workers have the right to seek workers' compensation benefits without interference or retaliation from their employers. If your employer has tried to convince you not to apply for benefits or has terminated you after applying for benefits — your employer is in violation of the law.
Employers have been known to claim that a worker was terminated for a reason other than his or her application for workers' compensation benefits. Once the employer has stated its reason for firing the employee, we compare that reason to other employees in the same situation.
