Mediation Procedures

Several of the Workers’ Compensation Judges at the Office of Administrative Hearings (OAH) are available one week per month to conduct mediations. Parties seeking mediation may file a Mediation Request Form. Please fill out the form as fully as possible. The more complete the form, the more likely the OAH Mediation Team will be able to determine if the case is appropriate for mediation and schedule mediation.

The Mediation Request Form may be mailed to: P.O. Box 64620, St. Paul, MN 55164-0620. Please mark the outside of the envelope MEDIATION. As always, DO NOT SEND ANY CONFIDENTIAL DOCUMENTS WITH YOUR MEDIATION REQUEST FORM.

Please review the OAH Mediation Attorney Information Sheet with instructions on how and where to file your request. You will also find contact information, the procedures for scheduling mediation and how to file documents, records and statements for OAH Mediation.

In addition, the Mediation Ground Rules and Mediation Agreement Form are available for use by participants.
