Workers' Compensation Archives

Can your employer fire you because of your work comp claim?

It is not easy to tell your boss that you were hurt at work. You might be worried that you or your coworkers will get in trouble for somehow causing the workplace accident. Maybe, your injuries are so bad that you need to go on light duty or take some time off to heal. 

My workers' compensation claim was denied. Now what?

After suffering an on-the-job injury, you may not know where to turn. The first step, of course, is to report the injury to your employer and seek medical attention. You may go on to file a workers' compensation claim to receive benefits for your medical bills and any wages you lose during the recovery process.

Understanding workers' comp in Minnesota

Employees in Minnesota may benefit from learning more about workers' compensation coverage, as described by the Minnesota Department of Labor & Industry. Minnesota statues require all employers conducting business in the state to provide benefits for employees that suffer injuries on the job. The state defines employees as people who perform services for another in exchange for hire, this includes workers who are non-citizens, part-timers and juveniles as well.

Occupational disease and Minnesota workers' compensation

When most people think of workers' compensation, they think about having an accident at work that requires them to go to the doctor. The Minnesota program covers much more, however. People who contract certain types of work-related illnesses and diseases due to exposure to certain substances may also be eligible to file a workers' compensation claim.

What health care benefits does workers' compensation cover?

If a workers' compensation claim is accepted in Minnesota, the injured worker will receive payment for all reasonable medical expenses that are incurred as a result of the workplace injury. The worker may also be reimbursed for medication that is prescribed during the course of medical treatment. Gas mileage that is used to drive to and from medical appointments may also be reimbursed.

Federal workers protected by jobsite regulations

Federal employees working in Minnesota are entitled to worksites that are free from recognized health and safety hazards. Both federal agencies and their employees are required to take steps that ensure security in the work environment. Most of these are preventative measures.

What types of injuries fall under workers' compensation?

Ramsey employees may wish to know what types of injuries are covered under workers' compensation. Depending on the connection of the injury to the job, many injured workers are eligible for benefits under these programs.

OSHA issues fine after worker dies in Minnesota
