New day, new rules! Small and medium business owners, listen up. There's a fresh legal wind blowing in Minnesota. As of July 1st, 2023, no less than 5 laws have come into effect, and they might just impact your operations. 

Let's take a closer look:

1. Rights for lactating mothers: This new law not only accommodates lactating mothers but pushes for more inclusive working conditions. Will this inspire you to redesign your workplace?

2. Sick day regulations: Precise definitions and instructions for both party's responsibilities. How flexible is your sick leave policy?

3. Recreational marijuana use policy: With recreational marijuana legalized, it's time to revisit and revise your substance use policies.

4. Ergonomic workspace requirements: Healthy workspaces promote productivity. Are you ready to meet employees' ergonomic needs?

5. Non-compete agreements' standards: New restrictions may change how you engage with your employees post-termination.

Each of these laws brings a unique challenge and opportunity. Think of it as a chance to upgrade, to outperform, to stand out in a crowd of competitors.
