On April 29, Minnesota Governor Tim Walz signed S.F. No. 2677 into law, authorizing bonus payments to Minnesotans who worked in frontline sectors during COVID-19. This so-called “Hero Pay” law aims to thank eligible frontline workers for their sacrifices and hard work during the pandemic, when their work put them at risk of contracting COVID-19.
Effective June 8, employers in the identified frontline sectors have 15 days to advise all current workers who may be eligible for Frontline Worker Pay that they may have assistance available to them and how to apply for benefits. Employers must provide this notice by June 23. Click here to learn more.
