June 13, 2022 – When Minnesota Governor Tim Walz signed S.F. No. 2677 (2022) into law in May, providing bonus pay for eligible COVID-19 frontline workers, final details were still being worked out. Now that most of the details have been finalized, Minnesota employers need to prepare for a fast-approaching deadline.

The State of Minnesota recently released the required employer notice for the Frontline Worker Pay program and confirmed the application process was slated to open June 8. The employer notice announcement can be found here: http://www.dli.mn.gov/notice

Employers Required to Notify Employees

As part of the Frontline Worker Pay program, employers in a frontline sector are required to provide notice of the program by June 23, 2022.

This notice to employees is required under the law and beginning June 8, 2022, employers in the identified frontline sectors will have 15 days to advise all current workers who may be eligible for frontline worker pay.
