Minnesota Employment Law Changes with Natolie Hochhausen

Do you have questions on the new Employment Laws? Not sure how to prepare to ensure your business is compliant? 2023 brought many state legislative changes and new requirements for employers. We catch up with Natolie Hochhausen, HR & Employment Attorney at Fafinski, Mark & Johnson, to get a better understanding of many of the new changes already in effect or headed our way in the next few years including:

  • Paid Family and Medical Leave (Paid FMLA)
  • Earned Sick and Safe Time (ESST)
  • Recreational Cannabis
  • Parental Leave Act Revisions

We take a look at the background behind federal and state employment laws, how Minnesota’s employment laws compare nationally, implementation timelines for the new laws, eligibility criteria, federal vs. state laws, the complex intersection between the Earned Sick and Safe Time with existing PTO policies, and the increasing importance of keeping those employee manuals up to date.

This episode is a must-listen for business owners, HR professionals, and employees seeking clarity on the recent Minnesota legislative changes.
