Hot Legal Topics

For the second year in a row, important changes have occurred in laws that impact green industry businesses.  Many of the uncertainties around sick and safe leave and overtime have been resolved, and now Minneapolis has a new minimum wage ordinance that St. Paul is likely to copy in 2018.  Additionally, since January 1, 2018, all LLCs in Minnesota are governed by the new LLC statute. 

Attorneys Bryan Zlimen & Jared Nusbaum from the law firm of Zlimen & McGuiness will be discussing these changes and what your business needs to do to be compliant and take advantage of changes where it can. Additionally, we’ll be talking about policies surrounding these laws and taking your questions. 

Come and learn about how these new changes will affect your business in 2018 and beyond.
