2023 Minnesota Employment Legislation Updates
for Public Sector Employers

Held live on Tuesday, September 12, 2023  | 9:00am – 11:30am

Understand, Prepare and Take Action to Make Sure Your City, County or School is Compliant

The 2023 Minnesota legislative session wrapped up last May with the passage of some of the broadest and most sweeping employment-related regulations in decades, with mandates involving everything from employee paid leaves, to drug testing changes, to the public employer salary cap elimination. Some of these new regulations have already taken effect and demand action from every single Minnesota employer – including the public sector. 

Abdo’s HR Advisors and public employment attorneys from Quinlivan & Hughes law firm have partnered to provide Minnesota cities, counties, and public school districts with the public employer specific information affecting your workforce. During this webinar, we broke down each major area of legislation, rose critical employer decision points, and provided clear next steps to help you prepare for and comply with the changes, including: 

  • Elimination of Minnesota Public Employee Salary CapEffective May 25, 2023 
  • Revised PELRA Bargaining TermsEffective July 1, 2023 
  • Duty Disability Related to PTSDEffective July 1, 2023 
  • Marijuana & Drug Testing Policy ChangesEffective August 1, 2023 
  • Minnesota Employee Safe & Sick Leave (ESSL) Effective January 1, 2024 
  • Minnesota Paid Family & Medical LeaveEffective January 1, 2026 

Key leaders and decision makers, including Finance Directors, City Administrators/Managers, and Human Resource professionals who attended this session left with:

  • Clarity related to the specific impacts of each regulation and how they apply to your unique public organization. 
  • Prioritization of the most critical and time sensitive compliance decisions so you can focus on “first things first.” 
  • Identification of your key internal systems, policies, and practices that will require review, updates, and/or development. 
  • Proactive awareness of operational challenges, barriers, or risks that you’ll likely be faced with related to compliance.
