New Statewide Employment Law Effective July 1

June 21, 2019 8:53 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

One of the outcomes of the 2019 session is a new wage theft law with portions that impact all employers across Minnesota beginning July 1. Businesses of all sizes and locations  across the State are subject to the new law.

One provision you need to be aware of and prepare for is a new employee noticing requirement taking effect July 1 for all new employees. In addition, employers have new requirements for information to be placed on employee earning statements, additional record keeping mandates, and clarifications relating to when employees should be paid.

See the attached for a digest of the July 1 requirements from the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry. To review all your obligations under the law visit  http://www.dli.mn.gov/business/employment-practices/wage-theft-legislation-2019-and-summaries

Please feel free to disseminate this information any and all employers. For additional information contact the Southwest Business Association at (612) 823-3472 or info@experiencesouthwest.com.
