Charting A Path For MN State Leave 2024 & Beyond

Paid Family and Medical Leave is a new mandatory program launching for Minnesota employers in 2026 which will provide paid leave benefits when:

  • An employee needs time off work because of their own or a family member’s serious health condition
  • Bonding with a newborn or newly placed child
  • Certain personal safety issues
  • Certain military-related events

While 2026 may seem far away, there are items that employers need to be submitting to the State of Minnesota in 2024, and planning now for future compliance requirements will be key in setting your company up for success when the legislation goes into place.

In this webinar, we’ll discuss:

  • The legislation and what it means for Minnesota employers
  • Program funding requirements via an employer and employee TAX
  • Important employer considerations when approaching your first key decision: Entering into the state plan or implementing a fully insured or self-funded private plan

We’ll also give you a sneak peek to The Horton Group’s new Total Absence Management Consulting Services and how you may utilize our platform to comply with some of the requirements coming up.

Please join us on January 18, 2024, from 10:00 to 11:30 AM to learn more about this key piece of legislation and compliance requirement for employers.
