Appeals

Any party has the right to appeal the order of the judge. If a party wishes to appeal, a notice of appeal must be filed within 30 days of receipt of the order. The Workers’ Compensation Court of Appeals (WCCA) will review the hearing record. The WCCA can affirm, reverse, remand or modify the Judge's order. All parties will receive a copy of the WCCA decision. Any party may also appeal the WCCA decision to the Minnesota Supreme Court. Additional information about the appeal process can be found in Minnesota Statute 176.421 or by visiting the WCCA website at Minnesota Workers' Compensation Court of Appeals.

The Notice of Appeal to the Workers’ Compensation Court of Appeals form is published and maintained by the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry.
