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, at 1 p.m., through the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry. Panel members participate via Webex. Members of the public may monitor the meetings by Webex. Future meetings may be in person.
For more information or to be added to the email list for meeting notices, contact Patricia Rutz at firstname.lastname@example.org or 651-284-5235.
