Minnesota Employers Face New Wage Theft Law July 1

Minnesota employers should be preparing to comply with the state's new Wage Theft Law by Aug. 1, 2019. The law, which goes into effect July 1, 2019, will require employers take on additional responsibilities related to personnel record-keeping and written notices. It's expected the new law will increase Department of Labor and Industry (DLI) investigations and litigation. Businesses should take time to understand how to comply with the law in order to avoid unnecessary penalties. Employers can learn more about the new law by visiting the Minnesota DLI website.
