Most Minnesota employers accurately pay their employees. However, some purposely withhold wages from their employees. These employers are committing wage theft.
According to the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry (DLI), approximately 39,000 workers suffer from wage theft each year. And, businesses owe more than $11.9 million to workers because of it.
To help prevent more wage theft cases from occurring, the state has established the Minnesota Wage Theft Law. Read on to learn more about this new law and your employer responsibilities.
