Minneapolis Earned Sick and Safe Time Ordinance Upheld by Minnesota Supreme Court

On June 10, 2020, in Minnesota Chamber of Commerce v. City of Minneapolis, the Minnesota Supreme Court upheld the City of Minneapolis' Earned Sick and Safe Time (ESST) Ordinance. The ordinance requires employers to provide sick and safe time to employees who work within the city, and applies to all employees who work in Minneapolis, regardless of whether or not the employer is based in Minneapolis. Employers operating in Minneapolis—or other Minnesota cities with similar ordinances such as Duluth and St. Paul—should review their local ordinances, along with state and federal laws, to ensure compliance.

Attention Minnesota Employers: Duluth Set to Implement New Earned Sick and Safe Time Leave Requirements

On January 1, 2020, the city of Duluth will join Minneapolis and St. Paul in imposing new sick and safe time leave requirements on employers. Specifically, employers with five or more employees—regardless of where those employees work—must provide their Duluth-based employees with earned sick and safe time (ESST). ESST can be used by employees in order to care for themselves or a family member in situations involving illnesses, injuries, and physical or mental health conditions, as well as domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking. Minnesota employers should assess whether they have employees working in Duluth to which the ESST ordinance may apply. They should also review their current PTO policies and make sure they comply with the ordinance. More ›
