In Minnesota, any employer who employs 21 or more employees is required to maintain the MLPA. An employee is eligible if they have worked 12 months or more and have worked at least half of the hours per week as an employee with the same position working full time. If the employee fulfills these two requirements, the employer is required to grant them up to six weeks of unpaid leave after the birth or adoption of a child. This does not restrict an employer from allowing more time or benefits. If you are being denied this right, contact an attorney immediately to help you receive the leave that you are entitled.
