Legislative Updates

Update #1
Thanks to Bill Gschwind of MN Construction Law Services for the following update on the new Paid Sick and Safe Time policy in Minneapolis:
Determine which employees are entitled to paid sick/safe time.  All employees who perform work in the City of Minneapolis for at least 80 hours per year are entitled to earn paid sick/safe time. This includes employees who are based and/or primarily work in other cities, if they work at least 80 hours per year in Minneapolis.
The new ordinance takes effect on July 1, 2017, so there is time for the ordinance to be changed as employers figure out what’s in it. If your company employs at least six employees (doesn’t matter whether they are full or part-time, permanent or temporary, or whether the employees work in Minneapolis) you’ll have to provide paid sick time. Smaller companies are required to provide unpaid sick time. The employees who work at least 80 hours per year must receive the benefit without regard to where the business is located or where the employees’ primary work activities take place. Employees must be notified of their “right” at the job site and in the employee handbook. Employees earn at least 1 hour of sick time for every 30 hours worked, must be allowed to accrue up to 48 hours per year and must be allowed to accrue and carry over from year to year up to 80 hours of sick time. If an employee would have been entitled to OT during the hours they are away, they must be paid at the OT rate for the sick time taken. Employers must maintain records for work occasionally performed in the city and provide reports to employees upon request. Employees do not need to provide documentation for sick days used for absences of 3 days or less.
Update #2
2016 Minnesota Subcontractor Contract Changes
MN Statute 337.10, commonly referred to as the Subcontractor Bill of Rights, has changed in two ways, effective August 1, 2016.
First, retainage withheld for work that is deemed to be undisputed must be paid to subcontractors or suppliers within 10 days of receiving payment from the owner. Subcontractors may suspend work until the retainage for undisputed work is paid.
Second, the amount allowed for retainage on subcontractor or supplier invoices is now set at a maximum of 5%.
