Stipulations for settlement must contain, if applicable, a brief statement of the admitted material facts, a statement of the matters in dispute, the positions of the parties and supporting documentation, the matters agreed upon, and where the agreement is not conclusively presumed reasonable under Minnesota Statutes, section 176.521, sufficiently specific information for the judge to determine whether or not the settlement is fair, reasonable, and in conformity with the act. The party submitting the stipulation for settlement for approval must also provide a proposed award on stipulation prepared for signature by a judge.
A stipulation for settlement must be filed within 45 days of the date the parties reached an agreement. If the stipulation is not timely filed, and good cause for the delay is not shown after notice to the parties, the judge shall reinstate the matter on the active trial calendar, strike or dismiss the matter, or schedule the matter for another proceeding. The office shall assist the parties in finalizing and filing a stipulation for settlement.
