Minnesota to Mandate Paid Sick Leave Time for Employees

St. Paul becomes the second city in Minnesota to mandate paid sick leave time for employees. http://www.twincities.com/2016/09/07/st-paul-approves-earned-sick-leave-mandate/. The ordinance, which takes effect July 1, 2017, requires employers to allot their workers an hour of earned sick leave for every 30 hours worked, up to 80 hours in a two-year period.

That time can be used to care for a sick family member or in the case of domestic assault or stalking. State and federal employers are exempt. Unlike Minneapolis, which passed a similar ordinance in May, the St. Paul rules do not exempt "micro" businesses with fewer than six employees. The Minneapolis ordinance, while similar, applies to employers with more than five employees.
