Research and Statistics -- Minnesota workers' compensation

Survey of workers with a settlement or hearing

During the spring of 2012, the Department of Labor and Industry (DLI) conducted a survey of workers with settlements or findings and orders from a hearing. Surveys were mailed to nearly 1,600 workers and 323 workers with settlements received during the fall months of 2009, 2010 and 2011, and 204 workers with findings and orders received between July 2009 and December 2011 responded to the survey request.

The surveys asked questions about workers' decisions to go to trial or pursue a settlement, how well they understood their current or potential workers' compensation benefits, additional information they would like to have known and their comments about the dispute resolution system.
