Labor Standards Enforcement Division

 

About

The Labor Standards Enforcement Division (LSED) oversees compliance with the City's Sick and Safe Time and Minimum Wage  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 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.
