Notice of Employer Bankruptcy under Minnesota Law

Minnesota law requires that an employer must immediately notify all of its employees in writing if the employer files a petition for bankruptcy or if an involuntary bankruptcy petition is filed against the employer.  See Minn. Stat. § 181.93.  In addition, if the employer offers a job to someone at any time after a petition for bankruptcy or involuntary bankruptcy has been initiated and before the petition is closed, the employer must provide written notification of the bankruptcy petition to the person to whom the job is offered at the time of the job offer.
