Minnesota Paid Leave

Minnesota Tax

Paid Leave is a new program launching for Minnesotans in 2026. It provides paid time off when a serious health condition prevents your employees from working, when your employees need time to care for a family member or a new child, for certain military-related events or for certain personal safety issues.

Starting in mid-2024, most Minnesota employers will be required to submit a wage detail report, which will detail the quarterly wages received and hours worked for each employee.

The Paid Leave division will leverage the existing Unemployment Insurance (UI) UI Online system to collect wage detail reports for the program. If an employer is covered by the UI program, they will be able to submit a single wage detail file for both programs when they pay their UI taxes. If an employer is not covered by the Unemployment Insurance program, they will need to set up a “Paid Leave Only” account.

The first wage detail reports will be due on October 31, 2024, and will be based on wages paid between July 1, 2024, and September 30, 2024. Premiums do not need to be paid until after the Paid Leave program launches in 2026. The initial wage detail reports are for informational purposes only.
