The Sick and Safe Time Ordinance Frequently Asked Questions document is intended to provide the public with information about how the Department of Civil Rights may guide its personnel in processing and investigating reported violations and interpreting the Sick and Safe Time Ordinance.
In response to public comments and numerous requests for technical assistance received from individuals and stakeholders during spring and summer 2017, the Frequently Asked Questions document has undergone revisions. The final version is available now on the Sick and Safe Time website employee and employer resources pages.
Revisions are intended to resolve ambiguity. The Department of Civil Rights’ substantive interpretation of specific Ordinance provisions has not changed. The way the Department communicates some of this information has been revised slightly. The Department carefully considered every comment and question it received and incorporated many into its guidance.
Also available now, please see our new website at minimumwage.minneapolismn.gov for resources and information regarding the Minneapolis Municipal Minimum Wage Ordinance, effective January 1, 2018.
