Minnesota Wage-Theft Law Goes Into Effect

A new state law that holds contractors and developers responsible for subcontractor wage violations on their jobsites goes into effect Tuesday.

The Construction Worker Wage Protection Act, part of the omnibus jobs and labor bill that was signed into law during the 2023 legislative session, “gives workers hope in collecting their unpaid wages for the work that has already been performed,” according to the North Central States Regional Council of Carpenters.

The carpenters union, which lobbied for the law, said it will enable construction workers who are victims of wage theft to collect unpaid wages from contractors and developers “who will be responsible for the wages owed employees by the subcontractors they choose to perform the work.”
