Wage and Hour Exemptions

Employees may be exempt from wage and hour laws based on criteria associated with their salary, actual duties, and skills. Exempt employees neither receive overtime pay nor qualify for minimum wage. Minnesota labor law defines these exemptions based on Executive, Administrative, or Professional status. Learn more here.

Minnesota Labor Law Poster Updates

All businesses within the State of Minnesota must display the new Minimum Wage Laws Notice along with other state-mandated posting requirements where it is sufficiently accessible and viewable to all employees. This change has been reflected in our Minnesota & Federal Labor Law Poster and does require an immediate mandatory update. Failure to meet compliance requirements and display the updated poster could result in fines.

Order the Minnesota Labor Law Poster to immediately include this required update.
