Hazardous conditions are present in nearly every workplace. It is highly likely that over the course of your career you or a loved one will experience an accident related to employment. Once you prove that your injury is job-related, there are a number of things you can do to receive compensation. In these situations, it is important to be aware of your legal rights as an employee.
Protecting Your Rights
If you are injured at your workplace, it is essential that you report the incident immediately! State law requires accidents to be reported in a specified time frame after the occurrence. An injury that has occurred over a long period of time must be reported as soon as you realize that the injury was caused from your employment. No matter who is at fault, an injured employee is entitled to worker’s compensation under Minnesota law. Worker’s compensation laws hold employers responsible for handing the medical costs of an injury that happened while on the job. It requires the employer to pay an injured employee a portion of his or her salary for the duration of the period in which the employee is unable to work. In order to be sure that your rights will be honored or if you run into disputes with your employer, contact an attorney for legal counsel.
