Gender Discrimination in Minnesota

Gender Discrimination in Minnesota

In Minnesota it is illegal for your employer to treat you differently because of your gender or sex. If you think that your employer is targeting you or singling you out because of your gender, they may be engaging in illegal gender discrimination.

  • Is your boss or employer giving you more work than your male colleagues?
  • Is your boss or employer treating you differently because you are pregnant?
  • Are you excluded from meetings, trainings, or other business opportunities because of your gender?
  • Do you work harder than your male colleagues but receive less pay?
  • Does your boss or supervisor apply gender stereotypes to you, stating that you are not “aggressive enough” or “tough enough” for the job?

If you have answered yes to any of the above questions or have noticed that you are treated differently than your male colleagues and co-workers, you may be the victim of gender discrimination.
