Minnesotans are known for being tolerant and well-mannered, but our workplaces aren’t always as accepting as we would like to think. Every day in Minnesota, people face harassment in the workplace because of certain characteristics that are protected by law. On the other hand, Minnesota employers often face false allegations of harassment.
Employment law claims often involve allegations of harassment based on protected characteristics such as:
- National origin
- Gender and sexual orientation
At Minenko & Hoff, P.A. we represent clients throughout the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, as well as the state of Minnesota, in workplace harassment litigation. We represent employees and employers, bringing and defending lawsuits, resolving matters through arbitration and mediation, and counseling employers on how to prevent harassment in the workplace.
Experienced Lawyer For Sexual Harassment In The Workplace
At Minenko & Hoff, P.A., Minneapolis/St. Paul attorney Mike Minenko frequently represents people who have faced sexual harassment and other types of harassment in the workplace. Our clients aren’t just women, although many people think of women as the only victims of sexual harassment. Anyone can be the victim of sexual harassment. Men are victimized as well as women, and many people face harassment due to their sexual orientation.
In recent years, sexual harassment against gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) people has attracted a great deal of media attention. Many straight people face sexual harassment as well, especially when they do not conform to traditional gender stereotypes.
