Labor Standards Enforcement Division 

About

The Labor Standards Enforcement Division (LSED) oversees compliance with the City's Sick and Safe TimeMinimum Wage , and Wage Theft ordinances. The Minimum Wage Ordinance sets a new hourly minimum wage standard for work ​performed in Minneapolis. The Sick and Safe Time Ordinance creates access to time off work for employees across the city. The Wage Theft Ordinance works with the state's wage theft law to protect employers and employees and to ensure people receive all wages and benefits to which they're entitled.  

The City of Minneapolis believes no one should have to choose between being healthy, being safe and being paid a fair wage. LSED, a Division of the Minneapolis Department of Civil Rights, helps everyone understand employment standards and issues penalties when necessary.
