Thank you for using JustAnswer.
I'm sorry to hear about your situation. No, you don't have to fill this out. If it's a contractor, it's not your employee. An Independent Contractor is not covered by the Workers’ Compensation Act. An independent contractor is a person who is defined by Minn. Rules 5224.0010 through 5224.0340. See Minn. Stat. § 176.041 subd. 1(1). These rules cover 34 specific occupations, and also provide general criteria for non-specified occupations. A primary factor to consider in making this determination is whether the putative employer exercised control, or had the right to exercise control over the means and manner of doing the job.
The employer has a duty to fill out the First Report of Injury (FROI), as part of the workers compensation case for an employee. You're not the employer, and so you have no obligation to fill it out.
