What is Employment Discrimination in Minnesota?

Discriminating against employees in protected classes are violations of both state and federal laws. The Minnesota Department of Human Rights protects individuals throughout the state from employment discrimination based on:

  • Color
  • Race
  • Religion
  • Creed
  • National origin
  • Sex
  • Sexual orientation
  • Gender identity
  • Age
  • Disability
  • Marital status
  • Familial status
  • Public assistance
  • Local human rights commission activity

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission protects employees who have suffered discrimination because of any of these factors, alone or combined, and our employment discrimination attorneys will aggressively hold all employers accountable when they violate our clients’ rights for fair treatment in the workplace.

Sexual Harassment in the Workplace is Illegal in Minnesota and Throughout the U.S.

At Heimerl & Lammers, our sexual harassment attorneys understand there is a lot of confusion when it comes to what types of behavior are permitted in the workplace.

Most employees know that sexual harassment is unwelcome or unwanted sexual conduct in the workplace, and many even know where the legal line is drawn. What most employees do not know is, the harasser does not have to be a supervisor. Sexual harassment can be committed by harassers who are:

  • Employees
  • Company owners
  • Managers
  • Customers
  • Vendors

Sexual harassers can be male or female, and can include sexual conduct that is:

  • Verbal
  • Physical
  • In writing or pictures

Sexual harassment creates an intimidating or hostile workplace that interferes with an employee’s job performance and requires partnering with an experienced sexual harassment attorney who will pursue results.  

Wage & Hour Attorneys

At Heimerl & Lammers, our wage and hour lawyers understand that when our residents take a job, they expect to be paid the wages and hours they have agreed upon, which take effect the minute they clock in for duty.

Our clients work hard to support themselves and their families and are entitled to the requirements outlined by our Minnesota wage and hour laws, including those related to:

  • Holiday leave
  • Jury duty leave
  • Meal and breaks
  • Minimum wage
  • Overtime
  • Severance pay
  • Sick leave
  • Vacation leave
  • Voting leave

When an employer makes unexpected deductions from wages, withholds payment for all hours worked or misses a scheduled payday altogether, they can – and should – be held accountable for their unlawful behavior. Our wage and hour lawyers can help outline your rights and your case, so you can pursue the financial outcome you deserve for your unique circumstances.

Wrongful Termination Lawyers

Minnesota is an “at-will” employment state, which means an employer can fire any employee for any reason if that reason is not illegal. What employers cannot do is fire an employee based on discriminating factors, including those previously listed as protective classes. Other grounds for pursuing a wrongful termination case include employer retaliation against an employee for:

  • Exercising his or her Family and Medical Leave Act rights
  • Making a complaint or report of discrimination
  • Questions, complaints, or opposes unlawful pay practices
  • Reporting conduct they believe is unlawful, also known as Whistleblowing
  • Suffering an at-work injury and seeking workers compensation benefits
