Minnesota Illegal Employment Practices

Help Filing Discrimination Complaints EEOC and Minnesota Department of Human Rights

If you are a victim of illegal employment practices, Neff Law Firm, P.A., can help you.

The law recognizes and protects workers against illegal discrimination in the workplace on the basis of race, age, gender, religion, national origin/ancestry, disability, and pregnancy status. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) investigates and enforces the federal anti-discrimination laws such as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disability Act and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act. On a state level, the Minnesota Human Rights Act provides employees similar protection from employment discrimination, but also protects people from discrimination in other areas such as housing, public accommodations and public services. Not every unfair practice by an employer will be considered illegal under the anti-discrimination laws. Further, because there are differences between the protections afforded under the federal and the state anti-discrimination laws, it is important to talk with an attorney knowledgeable in the area of illegal workplace discrimination about the facts of your particular situation. During such a consultation, the attorney can discuss with you your legal rights and options. The employment discrimination lawyers of Neff Law Firm, P.A., are well-versed in helping people files claims of discrimination with the either the EEOC and/or the Minnesota Human Rights Department. They have successfully represented many clients with illegal discrimination in the workplace.
