Being fired can often seem unfair. Although Minnesota is an “at-will” employment state, meaning an employer can fire someone for any reason, or no reason at all, there are exceptions. There are certain situations where it is illegal to fire a person. Even if a state is “at-will,” the employer cannot fire someone based on their gender, sex, race, religion, national origin, color, disability, age, and other factors protected by the law.
It is illegal to discriminate in employment based on one of several factors enumerated in federal, state, or local law. If a negative employment decision, including discharge, is made based upon any of these factors, the employer may have violated one of several anti-discrimination laws, including the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Minnesota Human Rights Act, or other laws against discrimination. Some of those factors include Sex, Race, Gender, Color, National Origin, Religion, Age, Creed, Pregnancy, or Disability.
Retaliation. It is essential to remember that you have the right to report discrimination and/or blow the whistle on illegal activities the employer is committing to the employer or a government agency, assist with investigations, and assert your workplace rights without fear of retaliation. Retaliation can take many forms, from demotions to even terminations. Any negative action taken against you for engaging in protected activities like reporting discrimination or participating in investigations constitutes illegal retaliation. You have the right to be free from any act that discourages you from exercising your rights, and employers who engage in retaliation can face serious legal consequences. So, do not let fear silence you – speak up and know that your rights are protected. Remember, you play a crucial role in making your workplace a fair and safe environment for everyone, and you have the law on your side.
