Wage Theft

In May 2019, the Legislature passed a new Minnesota Wage Theft Prevention Act to create additional protections for workers, including criminal penalties for employers that commit wage theft, which occurs when employers do not pay their workers what is owed them for the work they have performed. A failure to provide earned sick and safe time to eligible employees can constitute wage theft.
