It is illegal to discriminate (retaliate) against a person who has opposed discrimination or harassment or who has filed a charge, testified, assisted, or participated in an investigation, proceeding, or hearing under the Minnesota Human Rights Act.

Examples of illegal retaliation include (but are not limited to):

  • An employee files a discrimination charge and then suffers adverse employment action.
  • A tenant objects to sexual harassment by a property manager and is then evicted.
  • An employee is demoted because s/he refused to tolerate sexual harassment in the workplace.
  • An employee is fired for objecting to homophobic comments or for reporting racism or other discrimination.

If you feel you may have suffered retaliation for refusing to tolerate discrimination or harassment, call us.  We’ll evaluate your situation at no cost.
