Let’s start with the first and most important detail: Minnesota is
an employment “at will” state. This means that an employer can fire
any employee for any reason as long as that reason is not illegal.
Even though Minnesota is an “at will” state, an employer may not discriminate against an employee who is part of a protected class. If you feel you were terminated because of discrimination based on race, creed, color, sex, national origin, ancestry, religion, age, disability, sexual orientation or marital status, contact us to see if you have a cause of action against your employer.
In addition to discrimination claims, there may be other causes of action (e.g., contract liability, wrongful discharge or whistleblower protection), so contact us today to set up an appointment to discuss your options.
