Every Minnesota employer must carry workers’ compensation insurance or agree to self-insure. While this requirement serves to protect the employer from great financial losses when an employee is injured, it mostly serves to provide injured or ill employees with the benefits they require to get healthy and rejoin the workforce.
Workers’ compensation benefits include:
You cannot sue your employer for injuries or illnesses you sustained while on the job. In some instances, however, you may be able to pursue what is a called a third-party liability claim. This involves suing another person or company who caused your injury, as long as that person is not another employee at your workplace or if the injury occurred while you were off-site on work business.
