524.5-501 GUARDIANSHIP, CONSERVATORSHIP; WORKERS' COMPENSATION PROCEEDINGS.

(a) When a matter is referred under section 176.092, subdivision 3, the court shall determine whether the employee or dependent is a minor or an incapacitated person, shall appoint a guardian or conservator if the employee or dependent is a minor or an incapacitated person, and shall return the matter to the source of referral.

(b) The court shall oversee the use of monetary benefits paid to a conservator as provided in this article or under rule 145 of the General Rules of Practice for the district courts. There is a rebuttable presumption that a settlement or award approved by the commissioner of the Department of Labor and Industry or a compensation judge is reasonable and fair to the employee or dependent.

(c) Subject to the approval of the court, the insurer or self-insured employer shall pay the costs and guardian, conservator, and attorney fees of the employee or dependent associated with the appointment of a guardian or conservator and as required under section 176.092.
