The tort of wrongful discharge in Minnesota

While this blog has discussed it on previous occasions, it may be helpful to review the basics of Minnesota's wrongful discharge claim, which is available to employees under the common law of Minnesota. Sometimes, Minneapolis residents might get confused about the difference between wrongful discharge and other legal claims based on an illegal or discriminatory firing.

Concern over how new overtime claim rules impacts workers

One of the biggest issues over which Minnesota workers embark on a dispute with their employer is due to an overtime claim. Since unpaid overtime can violate employee rights, it is imperative to understand the law and when it is possible to lodge a claim to receive what is owed.

New overtime rules may benefit Minnesota workers

After years of delay, the United States Department of Labor has revised federal overtime rules. These rules mean that 1.3 million salaried employees across the country, including in many in Minnesota, will either see a reduction in the number of hours they are expected to work, an increase in their base pay, or more overtime.
