Minnesota’s 2024 Legislation Updates: Employment Law

Last year, the Minnesota Legislature enacted sweeping changes to the employment law landscape through the Jobs and Economic Development and Labor Omnibus Budget Bill. Now, Governor Tim Walz has signed the 2024 Omnibus Labor and Industry Policy Bill and the 2024 Transportation, Housing, and Labor Omnibus Budget Bill, which bring about several notable changes to Minnesota law covering pregnancy accommodations, restrictive covenants in service contracts, minimum wage, information required in job postings, and oral fluid drug, cannabis, and alcohol testing. The bills also contain provisions enacting changes to Minnesota’s earned sick and safe time law, paid family and medical leave, and worker misclassification, and changes to the Minnesota Human Rights Act have also been enacted.
