Nobody knows employment law like we do.

Minnesota and federal laws strive to rid workplaces of many forms of employment discrimination. We offer strong capabilities within employment discrimination law. The Minnesota Human Rights Act (“MHRA”) and related federal laws, such as the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (“ADEA”) and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act protect employees from discrimination based on age, disability, gender, pregnancy, sexual orientation, race and marital status, as well as a hostile work environment when the hostile treatment is due to the employee’s protected status. Service members are also protected from discrimination under the Uniform Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (“USERRA”).

Employees have additional rights and protections when employers conduct workplace drug and alcohol testing or perform employment background checks. Finally, a wrongful termination may be unlawful and actionable if it violates a state or federal law.
