Workers' Compensation

All work related injuries must be reported to the employee's supervisor or by contacting Human Resources at 218-683-8631 within 24 hours of the date/time of the injury, at which time the supervisor, along with the injured employee, will need to complete the Incident/Injury/Illness Data Form (IDF). If the injury is life threatening or fatal, Human Resources must be notified immediately.

The employer & employee should retain a copy of the IDF. IDF forms are available in the Human Resources office or you may download the IDF form from Admin Minnesota. Supervisors of the injured employee, along with the employee, must also review and complete the Supervisors checklist to ensure all appropriate forms are completed and the injured employee receives proper paperwork. Additional information and forms can also be found at the State Workers Compensation Web site.

If an employee receives treatment and has any type of work restrictions, this needs to be in writing from the treating physician and given to the employee's immediate supervisor with a copy to the Human Resources Office.

If medical attention is required, you must contact a medical facility nearest you.
