                            CHAPTER 341-H.F.No. 2682 
                  An act relating to employment; modifying provisions 
                  governing school conference and activities leave; 
                  amending Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 181.9412.  
           Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 181.9412, is 
        amended to read: 
           Subdivision 1.  [DEFINITION.] For purposes of this section, 
        "employee" does not include the requirement of section 181.940, 
        subdivision 2, clause (1).  
           Subd. 2.  [LEAVE OF 16 HOURS.] (a) An employer must grant 
        an employee leave of up to a total of 16 hours during any 
        12-month period to attend school conferences or classroom 
        school-related activities related to the employee's child, 
        provided the conferences or classroom school-related activities 
        cannot be scheduled during nonwork hours.  If the employee's 
        child receives child care services as defined in section 
        256H.01, subdivision 2, or attends a prekindergarten regular or 
        special education program, the employee may use the leave time 
        provided in this section to attend a conference or activity 
        related to the employee's child, or to observe and monitor the 
        services or program, provided the conference, activity, or 
        observation cannot be scheduled during nonwork hours.  When the 
        leave cannot be scheduled during nonwork hours and the need for 
        the leave is foreseeable, the employee must provide reasonable 
        prior notice of the leave and make a reasonable effort to 
        schedule the leave so as not to disrupt unduly the operations of 
        the employer. 
           Subd. 3.  [NO PAY REQUIRED; SUBSTITUTE OF PAID LEAVE.] (b) 
        Nothing in this section requires that the leave be paid; except 
        that, an employee may substitute any accrued paid vacation leave 
        or other appropriate paid leave for any part of the leave under 
        this section.  
           Sec. 2.  [EFFECTIVE DATE.] 
           Section 1 is effective July 1, 1996. 
           Presented to the governor March 18, 1996 
           Signed by the governor March 19, 1996, 4:05 p.m.
