- Minnesota does not require paid sick leave for employees of private sector employers. See Paid Sick Leave.
- A covered employer must allow eligible employees to use personal sick leave benefits for absences due to the illness or injury of a covered relative on the same terms as the employees are permitted to use the sick leave benefits for their own illness or injury. See Kin Care Leave.
- Ensure that practices and policies comply with applicable paid sick leave requirements. See Key Compliance Steps.
- Localities including Duluth, Minneapolis and St. Paul have requirements pertaining to paid sick leave. See Local Requirements.
