Although the job market is seemingly better than it has been in decades, just because job opportunities are plentiful doesn’t mean that employees in Minnesota don’t face challenges. Finding the right job can be just as hard as finding any job at all, because, unfortunately, there are still many employees who face discrimination, harassment and pay-related issues in the workplace.
Discrimination can come in many different forms. For some, it will be based on race, gender or religion. For others, it may be based on their age or a physical or mental disability. Still others will face discrimination because they are pregnant, or they have some other health condition. Employees in Minnesota are protected by both state and federal laws against most forms of discrimination that they might face in the workplace.
In some cases, employees just don’t know what their rights are when it comes to compensation for their job and other terms of employment. For example, many people need help understanding the details of negotiations about severance packages or non-compete agreements.
At our law firm, we understand that employees who are facing these challenges in the workplace need to know their rights and their options. Whether they are facing discrimination, harassment or illegal practices when it comes to pay and terms of employment, we seek to help our clients find the best solution.
