AFCC-MN recently received some information from James Tuft (yes, that James Tuft), regarding the new law in Minnesota that provides for bonus pay to eligible COVID-19 frontline workers. According to James, many AFCC-MN members may be eligible for this bonus pay, as it applies to employers and employees in broad range of industries that include:
public health, social service, and regulatory service
courts and corrections
According to James, the application period will be open from June 8 through July 22 and employers in the identified frontline sectors must provide a notice to employees. Eligibility criteria for Frontline Worker Pay are set forth in the law and there are many nuances and details included as well.
Erik Hinz and Jessica Roe of The Horton Group will present a webinar on June 15, 2022, at 2 pm to discuss the announcement and answer your questions.
