WHAT ADDITIONAL SICK AND SAFE TIME RESPONSIBILITIES DO EMPLOYERS HAVE?
In addition to providing their employees with one hour of paid leave for every 30 hours worked, up to at least 48
hours each year, employers are required to:
• include the total number of earned sick and safe time hours accrued and available for use, as well as the total
number of earned sick and safe time hours used, on earnings statements provided to employees at the end of
each pay period;
• provide employees with a notice by Jan. 1, 2024 — or at the start of employment, whichever is later — in English
and in an employee’s primary language if that is not English, informing them about earned sick and safe time; and
• include a sick and safe time notice in the employee handbook, if the employer has an employee handbook.
The Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry will prepare a uniform employee notice that employers can use
and will make it available in the five most common languages spoken in Minnesota.
CURRENT SICK AND SAFE TIME LOCAL ORDINANCES
Earned sick and safe time local ordinances already exist in the cities of Bloomington, Duluth, Minneapolis and St.
Paul, Minnesota. When Minnesota’s statewide earned sick and safe time law goes into effect Jan. 1, 2024, employers
must follow the most protective law that applies to their employees.
