EEOC Harassment Guidelines Issued

On May 24, 2023, Governor Tim Walz signed into law an omnibus jobs and economic development bill that included, among its many workplace-related provisions, the establishment of a statewide paid sick leave program, effective on January 1, 2024. This law is similar to the existing Minneapolis and St. Paul earned sick and safe time ordinances, but it does not preempt them. In other words, and according to the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry’s website,”employers must follow the most protective law that applies to their employees.” The website indicates that an employee notice, frequently asked questions regarding the new program, and a workplace poster will be “coming soon.”
