Are injured railroad employees covered by workers' compensation?

Generally speaking, when a Minnesota employee is injured on the job he or she may be eligible for workers' compensation benefits. The only legal requisite for the worker to be eligible to receive workers' compensation is that his or her injury must have been acquired while he or she was performing his or her job duties. Anything short of that will result in the worker's petition being disqualified. Workers are also covered if they contract a disease that is directly attributable to work-specific duties, or due to being employed in Minnesota.

Minnesota residents may be interested to know that a deal between North Dakota regulators and the Federal Railroad Administration appears imminent. Once struck, the deal will permit the state to enforce a rail safety program that will be financed by the Legislature.
