Workplace injury

A new bill (H.B. 1260) introduced in the Minnesota Legislature would allow employees who are seriously injured on the job to sue their employers. Employers would be liable to an injured worker if they willfully or repeatedly violated the state’s occupational safety and health standards. Under current law, employers are granted immunity in such cases. The only recourse for an injured employee is to apply for workers’ compensation benefits.
