Employment Discrimination

Minnesota Employment Discrimination Lawyers

The law clearly states that it is illegal to single an employee or group of employees out based on a protected status, such as age, race, disability, pregnancy, ethnicity, religion or sexual orientation. It is illegal to treat him or her differently from other employees, including in matters of:

  • Hiring and firing
  • Compensation, salary, wage or benefits
  • Territories or assessments
  • Layoffs, reductions or forced retirements
  • Use of company campus or facility
  • Testing or assessments
  • Training, apprenticeships or development opportunities
  • Disability leave
  • Severance

Have You Experienced Employment Discrimination? Talk to Us.

At Villaume & Schiek, P.A., of Bloomington, Minnesota, we are committed to advocating on behalf of workers and employees who have been treated unfairly or discriminated against based on a protected status. Many clients come to us knowing that something is not right with the manner in which they have been treated. We listen closely and educate them on the ways their employment has been handled illegally by the company or employer, as well as the options available moving forward.

Our lawyers also represent the interests of veterans in the workplace. It can be difficult for these individuals who have served our country to find and keep employment due to misconceptions that they are prone to anger, violence or disability. The Veterans Preference Act works to protect these individuals, requiring a veterans preference hearing be held before a veteran is disciplined or terminated.
