For many years, the Minnesota Workers' Compensation Law has remained stable with few changes. In May 2018, there were major legislative revisions. The laws pertaining to TTD, TPD, PTD, and the medical fee schedule were amended (eff. for injuries on or after 10/1/2018). Additionally, there will now be a presumption in cases of PTSD involving individuals in certain high risk jobs (eff. for injuries on or after 1/1/2019).

For a summary and analysis of the legislative changes, please see below. If you have any questions, please contact us at Cousineau, Waldhauser, & Kieselbach, P.A.
