DLI's new workers' compensation claims portal

Work Comp Campus logo

In summer 2020, the Department of Labor and Industry (DLI) will be rolling out a new workers' compensation claims portal, Work Comp Campus.

Work Comp Campus is an online portal that will improve support to injured workers and provide greater insight into claims and disputes for all parties.

Work Comp Campus will provide ready and easy access for all parties involved in a workers' compensation claim to manage their claim, on their terms, in real time online. The system will allow quicker access to claim information among attorneys, employers, injured workers, insurance companies and medical providers to ensure work injuries are reported, treated and compensated in a streamlined manner.

DLI is partnering with Minnesota IT Services (MNIT), the Workers' Compensation Court of Appeals (WCCA) and the national IT consulting firm CapTech to build this state-of-the-art workers' compensation system.

What do I need to know?

  • Work Comp Campus will go live in summer 2020 in a single production release.

  • When Work Comp Campus goes live in summer 2020, DLI will no longer be accepting paper transactions, only electronic data. The Minnesota R3.1 Implementation Guide will go into effect when Work Comp Campus goes live.

  • All users, except injured workers, will be required to use Work Comp Campus. The move to fully electronic data underscores Minnesota's commitment to helping injured workers by ensuring high-quality data can be moved quickly and efficiently between parties.

  • System training for users will begin in spring 2020. We will share details on this page in winter 2019.

How is the system being built?

  • Work Comp Campus is currently under construction.

  • The system-build is broken into 15 cycles. During each cycle, new functionality is developed and then DLI and stakeholders immediately test that functionality.

  • This means DLI and stakeholders will get to fully experience and test the new system before it goes live in summer 2020, decreasing the likelihood of issues when the system rolls out.
