Minneapolis can regulate sick leave, but only in Minneapolis

A county judge says that the city of Minneapolis can go forward with their sick leave regulation, but they can’t force companies outside the city to comply.

Jessie Van Berkel of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

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.

The sick leave ordinance — scheduled to take effect July 1 — says workers who spend at least 80 hours in the city per year should earn sick time, regardless of where their company is based.
