What Minnesota employers need to know about background checks

Many small employers in Minnesota mistakenly think that because Minnesota is an at-will employment state, employers can hire and fire employees on their own terms. The truth is that employment relationships are governed to a certain degree by both state and federal law, and ignoring this can open employers to liability.

Providing Notice to Tenants

During your time as a landlord, you will periodically need to communicate information to your tenants. You may need to inform your tenants that a technician will visit the property to inspect the furnace, or you may need to terminate a month-to-month tenancy. Regardless of the situation, you need language in your lease that allows you to provide notice to your tenants by mailing a letter to the property.

The Importance of Using Experienced Process Servers and Legal Professionals for the Service of your Eviction Documents

In order to comply with the complicated statutes and rules governing service in eviction cases, you should employ a professional process server and experienced legal professionals. Professional process servers are important to ensure that the court does not dismiss your case for improper service. Legal professionals are important for drafting and filing the affidavits required to perfect service.

The Importance of Requiring Certified Funds Before Letting Your Tenants to Move in

Most leases require the tenant to pay the security deposit and the first month of rent at signing, or before moving in. But what happens if the tenants move in without paying? As a landlord, your first reaction is to call the police. You may view the tenants as squatters or even burglars, but the police probably will not view it that way.
