What is Sick and Safe Time?
Effective July 1, 2017, the City of Minneapolis Sick and Safe Time Ordinance creates access to time off work for employees across the city. Full and part-time staff, temporary employees and paid interns are included. Sick and safe time is flexible, extending coverage to more employees while preserving many employer controls.
