The Minnesota Society of Certified Public Accountants asked Leonard Segal to write an article regarding the new Minneapolis and St. Paul Sick and Safe Time Requirements that are scheduled to take effect on July 1, 2017. The article has been published in the MNCPA June/July 2017 issue of Footnotes magazine. You can read the article here (web version) or here (magazine print version).
Employer Action: The Governor vetoed a bill put forth by the Minnesota State Legislature to prevent cities from passing ordinances such as these so, absent further intervention from the courts, these new ordinances will take effect on July 1, 2017. Employers who have not yet done so would be wise to plan now to ensure compliance with these new ordinances.
