Wage Disclosure Protection Law –State and Federal Law Changes.
Every Minnesota employer must comply with the Wage Disclosure Protection law. Under this law, no employer can prohibit employees from disclosing or discussing their own wages. Employers that provide an employee handbook to their employees must include in the handbook a notice of employee rights and remedies under the Wage Disclosure Protection law.
As of January 11, 2016, federal contractors are prohibited from terminating or otherwise discriminating against employees or job applicants in any manner for inquiring about, discussing, or disclosing their own compensation or the pay of other employees or applicants.
For sample language to include in your employee handbook, or for other Minnesota employment law issues, contact Will Partridge at Farrish Johnson Law Office.
