Court: Minneapolis sick leave regulation can move forward - but only for employers in the city


January 20, 2017

Minneapolis can move forward with plans to require companies to provide paid sick leave to employees, Hennepin County Judge Mel Dickstein ruled Thursday.

But he issued a temporary injunction to block Minneapolis from forcing companies based outside the city to comply in their Minneapolis operations.

The Minnesota Chamber of Commerce had requested an injunction to halt enforcement of the sick leave mandate, arguing that it conflicted with and was pre-empted by state law, and was an example of local government overreach. Dickstein agreed only with the third point.
