Updated: Minnesota Sick Days

In May 2014, Minnesota’s governor signed into law the Women’s Economic Security Act. The new law is aimed at improving working conditions for women. As a result of the new statute, this provision has been updated to include expanded allowances for sick leave and language allowing employees to use earned sick leave under certain circumstances related to sexual assault, domestic violence and stalking, as well as for illnesses of mother-in-law, father-in-law and grandchild.
