Curbing Discrimination In The Workplace

Despite continual legislation and case law to stem on-the-job discrimination, many employees still face the tension of illegal discrimination at work. For the past 40 years, the attorneys at the Law Office of Sivertson and Barrette, P.A., have been providing legal advocacy for those who battle workplace discrimination throughout Minnesota.

State and federal laws prohibit employers from engaging in age, gender, race, sexual orientation, pregnancy, marital status and other discrimination when relating to their potential and existing employees. Sometimes, employees are afraid to speak out and fight for their right to be free of discrimination at work due to fear of job loss. Other times, employees do not know they have a right to speak out. Our attorneys understand the immense emotional and financial impact losing your job can have on you and your loved ones. We are here to help you.

You Have Legal Options If You Are Fired For A Discriminatory Reason

If your employer terminates your employment because of a discriminatory reason such as your age, race, sexual orientation or any other protected status, you may have cause to take legal action against your employer. Wrongful termination can be difficult to prove on your own without the assistance of an experienced employment law attorney. Most employment relationships in Minnesota are considered “at will.” This means you can quit your job, or your employer can let you go for most any reason at any time. Your employer cannot fire you based on a discriminatory reason. But employers often veil the discriminatory basis for their wrongful termination. Our attorneys can help you sort through the facts surrounding your job termination and protect your rights.

Wrongful termination involves discrimination for one of the following reasons:

  • Age
  • Race
  • Color
  • Sex
  • Gender
  • Pregnancy
  • Sexual orientation
  • Marital status
  • Religion

The attorneys at the Law Office of Sivertson and Barrette, P.A., pride themselves on the compassionate representation of their clients. We are fearless in our fight to protect employee rights and interests.
