  • Administrative conferences, mediations:  As of Monday, March 23, 2020, the Department of Labor and Industry will conduct administrative conferences and mediations remotely by telephone or video conference. Parties also have the option of rescheduling events to a later date. Contact us at dli.workcomp@state.mn.us or 651-284-5032, or contact your assigned mediator, for more information.

  • Work Comp Campus:  The Workers' Compensation Modernization Program (WCMP) will continue to work on implementing Work Comp Campus as scheduled. We remain available to address questions you have at dli.wcmp@state.mn.us.

  • Copy file review:  DLI's Copy File Review team will be contacting citizens who have appointments scheduled to look at their workers' compensation files, so they can reschedule their appointment 30 days or more in the future. If it is imperative they see their file at their scheduled appointment time, DLI will limit the individual's access to a singular room and the Copy File Review team will ensure social-distancing practices are followed.

  • Rehabilitation consultations:  Until further notice, the Department of Labor and Industry (DLI) will not take any enforcement action under Minnesota Rules 5220.0130 against any qualified rehabilitation consultant (QRC) who conducts a rehabilitation consultation with an injured worker by telephone or video, rather than in person. DLI encourages QRCs to limit in-person meetings and implement social-distancing measures when providing a rehabilitation consultation and other rehabilitation services to injured workers. Placement vendors and their staff members, who meet with injured workers, are also encouraged to conduct meetings by phone or video.

  • Rehabilitation Review Panel:  The April 2 Rehabilitation Review Panel meeting will be via Webex. Email Patricia Rutz at patricia.rutz@state.mn.us for information about how to join the meeting.
