Minnesota’s new Wage Theft Law became effective on July 1, 2019. The new law amends existing state labor laws and provides for new wage and hour requirements, protections and sanctions. According to the Associated Press, Minnesota will have what sponsors say is the country’s toughest wage theft law. It comes down hard on employers who cheat workers by making it a felony punishable by up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine. An estimated 39,000 Minnesotans annually are victims of wage theft in some form.
The law also includes protections for employees who report wage theft and new enforcement money. Click the link below to review a summary from the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry.
