The Rehabilitation Review Panel (RRP) was created in 1981 by Minnesota Statutes 176.102. The RRP is composed of two members each representing employers, insurers, rehabilitation and medicine (for a total of eight), one member representing chiropractors and four members representing labor. The current RRP chairperson is Joseph Sweere, D.C.

Under M.S.176.102, the RRP reviews and makes determinations with respect to appeals from orders of the commissioner regarding certification approval of rehabilitation consultants and vendors; advises the department about vocational rehabilitation issues; and assists in the education of the provider community about workers' compensation. The RRP also has the authority to sanction a rehabilitation provider after a hearing at the Office of Administrative Hearings (OAH) if there has been a violation of the statutes or rules.
By statute, the RRP is a separate entity from the department. However, the department supplies all required administrative support to the board.
The RRP meets quarterly in the Minnesota Room at the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry. See the current meeting schedule below. For more information, contact Carrie Rohling via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (651) 284-5018.
DLI's Rehabilitation Review Panel has two openings for regular members: one insurer and one labor. Additionally, there is an opening for one alternate member, an employee/insurer. Applications are handled through the Secretary of State's Open Commissions and Appointments process. The application will be forwarded to DLI for consideration.
