In the United States, the law protects workers from discrimination. Various state and federal laws, regulations and policies shape the way employers are required to make decisions about employees. These dictate the way that workers must be treated in the workplace, as well as the hiring and firing decisions made by managers.
At Minenko & Hoff, P.A., employment lawyer Mike Minenko serves employers and employees throughout the Minneapolis/St. Paul area and all of Minnesota in matters of employment law, including discrimination. Mr. Minenko helps employers develop policies that prevent discrimination, and he litigates discrimination claims on both employers’ and employees’ behalf.
Every day in Minnesota, employees face many different kinds of discrimination, including:
- Marital status
- National origin
- Sex, including gender and sexual orientation
Our law firm uses in-depth knowledge of state and federal law, like the Minnesota Human Rights Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, Title VII of Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Americans With Disabilities Act, to achieve the best possible outcomes for the people we represent.
Age discrimination is a growing problem in the United States. With more and more baby boomers nearing retirement age, discrimination claims arise when employers choose younger employees over more established and experienced employees. It can be difficult to predict the outcome of an age discrimination claim. The analysis is heavily fact-based, and courts consider the reason for termination, as well as other important factors.
