Highlight

In a tort action by an employee to recover damages for a work-related injury, the employer has the burden of establishing by a preponderance of the evidence the defense that the employer is immune from suit under the exclusive remedy provisions of the workers compensation act.
North Dakota does not allow compensation for what are known within the parlance of workers compensation law as "mental-mental" injuries.
The North Dakota Human Rights Act does not preclude the filing of a claim in district court for damages based on sexual harassment.
