Minnesota Bill Requiring Paid Time Off Advances

From Session Daily, Tim Walker, February 13, 2019

“Presenteeism” was the word of the day at the House Labor Committee as lawmakers approved a bill that would require employers to allow employees to earn a variation of paid time off called earned sick and safe time.

Currently, workers who don’t get paid time off to care for themselves when they are sick may feel pressured to come in to work anyway to avoid losing wages and perhaps losing their jobs. That so-called “presenteeism” can lead to the spread of illness and other workplace problems.

And it can cause workers to make a difficult choice between earning a living and caring for themselves or others.

Sponsored by Rep. John Lesch (DFL-St. Paul), HF11 next goes to the House Government Operations Committee following the 10-4 vote. It has no Senate companion.

Lesch said the proposal is modeled after similar paid time plans recently passed by Minneapolis, St. Paul, and Duluth.

The bill would require employees to earn, at a minimum, one hour of paid, earned sick and safe time for every 30 hours worked, up to 48 hours per year. Accrual would begin when a qualified employee begins employment, but an employee may not begin using sick and safe time until they have worked for the employer for 90 days.

The safe time refers to time off for an employee to deal with situations “related to domestic abuse, sexual assault, or stalking of the employee.”
