As many employers are reviewing handbooks and policies for revisions for the new year, Employers without a business located in Minneapolis (but who have workers working in Minneapolis) should note that you do not yet need to comply with the City of Minneapolis Sick and Safe Leave Ordinance. On September 18, 2017, the Minnesota Court of Appeals upheld the temporary injunction as to non-Minneapolis resident employers. Thus, while Minneapolis employers must continue to comply with the Minneapolis Sick and Safe Leave Ordinance, non-Minneapolis resident employers are off the hook for now (keep in mind it is just a temporary injunction). That being said, employers can certainly chose to revise existing policies to comply with the ordinance’s requirements, but do not need to (yet – maybe someday, or maybe never). We will have to wait until the final Court order when it is heard on the merits.
