We help dietitians start their business, complete any transactions with their business, protect their license, navigate employment and contractor relationships, sell their business, hire and fire workers and maintain compliance with board rules, Minnesota law and Federal law.
In Minnesota, a dietitian has many rules to follow ranging from Minnesota Board Dietetics and Nutrition propagated rules all the way to Federal Law. Dietitians are also often in many contracts with employers, licensing agencies, vendors, commercial real estate agents, insurance companies, employers, employees, independent contractors, partners and local, state and federal agencies.
The main rules pertaining to Minnesota dietitians are in the following laws:
- Laws enacted by the Legislature governing the practice of dietetic and nutrition practice – MN Statutes Ch. 148.621 – 148.634
- Rules adopted by the Board regarding the practice of dietetics and nutrition – Rules of Dietetic and Nutrition Practice – MN Rules Chapter 3250
- Laws enacted by the Legislature governing the establishment and operation of examining and licensing boards – Examining and Licensing Boards – MN Statutes Ch.
The most frequent question we see is in regard to the definition of dietetics and related “wellness” services such as those seen on food blogs by individuals who are clearly not licensed professionals.
Invest in experienced legal counsel so you can focus on providing quality care (and enjoying quality time for yourself) rather than guessing and worrying about the law.
