No one enjoys tension in their workplace. For the most part, Minnesota residents want to enjoy what they do for a living, earn a decent income and go home happy to their families. Unfortunately, there are some employees in Minnesota who don't have this type of ideal situation. Instead, they may be subject to various forms of retaliation in the workplace, which can make life miserable.
Employers are not allowed to retaliate against employees who report unlawful conduct, such as OSHA violations or sexual harassment issues. But, the reality is that some employers will engage in retaliation in the form of demotions, negative evaluations and even wrongful termination. An employee who faces these types of issues may think that they don't have any options, and instead they think that they have to trudge forward with a "blackmark" on their personnel file. That isn't the case.
At our law firm, we work with our clients who are facing unlawful retaliation in the workplace. When employers engage in unlawful discrimination, fail to pay their employees appropriately, break employment contracts or break the law, employees shouldn't be subjected to negative exposure when they report those violations.
Employment law affords Minnesota residents with legal options, perhaps under both state and federal law. At our law firm, we do our best to seek out the best option for our clients' unique, individual circumstances.
