To help prevent wage theft and promote payroll best practices in Minneapolis, the City has adopted parts of the state’s new wage theft law into local ordinance. This ordinance will provide workers in Minneapolis with an additional avenue to recover unpaid wages through enforcement by the City’s Civil Rights Department.
Under the ordinance and state law, employers must adhere to a regularly scheduled payday, provide employees with pre-hire notices of employment terms and conditions and earnings statements at the end of each pay period. To learn more, the City has posted additional information and preliminary FAQ's on a new wage theft website.
