Contracts can’t require out of state venue

Sales representatives will get their day in Minnesota court.

Effective Aug. 1, 2022, a new law will bar sales representative agreement provisions that include a choice of venue in another state. This means sales representatives working in Minnesota won’t face undue travel burdens in a dispute, and manufacturers cannot have sales contracts adjudicated out of state.

Rep. Zack Stephenson (DFL-Coon Rapids) and Sen. Eric Pratt (R-Prior Lake) sponsor the law.
