Below are finalized rules that have been adopted by the Department.
Proposed Rules Open for Public Comment
The Department has drafted frequently asked questions and rules documents to provide general guidance to freelance workers and those who hire freelancers about their rights and responsibilities under the City’s freelance worker protection ordinance, which takes effect Jan. 1, 2021.
The ordinance will help prevent the exploitation of freelance workers, including many self-employed entrepreneurs who work as independent contractors. Under the ordinance, businesses that hire certain freelancers for their work in the City of Minneapolis must confirm their agreement in writing. It is an ordinance violation for a hiring party to refuse to pay the freelancer as stated in the contract.
Please submit any public comments about the clarity and substance of information in the FAQs and rules documents here. The deadline for submitting public comments is Dec. 31, 2020.
