Know the new city ordinance and state laws for a wage claim

Workers in Minnesota are required by law to receive a certain amount of wages for work they do. However, some employers might try to reduce what an employee is paid and use illegal means to do so. This is known as wage theft. Workers who are aware of the new minimum wage law should also be cognizant of how the new wage theft laws will protect them.

Minnesota poised for a minimum wage increase

Minimum wage workers in Minnesota will get a 1.4% wage hike effective on January 1, with employers being required to pay at least $10 an hour to most workers. The federal minimum wage, at least for the time being, remains $7.25 an hour. However, Minnesota, like many other states, sets a statewide minimum wage higher than the federal minimum.
