Cadre Scheduling to release the only technology automating compliance with the Minneapolis and St. Paul earned sick and safe time ordinances prior to July 1st.

Cadre Scheduling, a cloud based contingent workforce solution, announces the launch of the only technology available to automate compliance with the Minneapolis and St. Paul ordinances, which mandate employers pay sick time benefits for employees, on the heels of the close of the Minnesota Legislative session that did not pass the Uniform Labor Standards Act that would have preempted the city ordinances from becoming effective. The Minneapolis and St. Paul laws go into effect on July 1, 2017.

This unique product is tied specifically to the locations of employees and provides compliance reporting adapted to the legal requirements of the municipalities. Employers subject to the ordinances can integrate the functionality of Cadre Scheduling with many of their existing systems for seamless automated compliance with the emerging city ordinances.

Cadre Scheduling is actively on-boarding employers in Minnesota to ensure that they receive the technology in time for the July 1 effective date of the Minneapolis and St. Paul ordinances.

"Employers big and small need to mobilize their human resources and IT teams to ensure that compliance before the laws become effective," said Kathy Harrell-Latham, CEO of Cadre. "The challenge faced by Minnesota employers is unique from any other city with similar ordinances because of the overlapping zip codes in the Twin Cities. No other product on the market can accommodate the requirements of this law and we are happy to be launching this product in time for Minnesota employers." Employers already use Cadre Scheduling to manage candidate communication across multiple locations, improve work opportunity tax credit return, and to source additional available candidates in face of a talent shortage.

David Young COO of Cadre Scheduling said: "As a Minnesota based company, we are proud to launch such critical technology for Minnesota employers." He went on to say, "At a time of uncertain regulation, it is important to Cadre Scheduling to offer companies a unique ability to comply without requiring a complete overhaul of their existing technology systems. This is an important cost savings that will help employers meet their obligations without requiring layoffs or relocation."

As part of the launch important to Minnesota, Cadre is also excited to announce its ability to comply with any further regulations by cities located in Minnesota or by the state of Minnesota and beyond such as wage theft prevention or minimum wage. Kathy Harrell-Latham said "Our unprecedented ability to identify the precise location and compensation of employees enables our customers to uniquely comply with city or state regulations while eliminating an overwhelming administrative burden that could otherwise crush growing business."

Employers subject to the Minneapolis, St. Paul, or (anticipated) Duluth ordinances may contact Cadre Scheduling to schedule a free audit of their current technology to determine the price and requirements to conform with the requirements of the city laws slated to become effective July 1. Interested employers can email contact(at)cadrescheduling(dot)com to schedule their free technology audit.

About Cadre
Cadre Scheduling is powered by the time, location, and pay rates of jobs. It uses this information to automate reporting with various city, county, or state laws governing employee schedules (i.e. earned sick and safe time, wage theft prevention, or predictable scheduling). The system uses a mobile solution, Timeku, which enables job-seekers in a tight talent market to sync all calendars, clock-in, manage training, and communicate with employers in one place.
