At Minenko & Hoff, P.A., we represent clients in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, as well as the state of Minnesota, in whistleblower and retaliation claims based on various laws, including the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the Minnesota whistleblower statute.
Our Edina law firm represents both employers and employees in these employment law disputes. Handling cases on both sides of the counsel table gives us a broad perspective. Unlike law firms that solely represent employers or employees, our law firm has shaped effective litigation strategies from both sides of a whistleblower case. We know what works, and we know what actions are necessary to protect our clients’ interests.
Complex Whistleblowing And Retaliation Claims
Because of the complex nature of employment laws in the United States, many claims do not fit into one narrow category. Many of our clients come to us thinking that they have a discrimination claim — that they were fired because of their age, gender, race, disability, or religion — but learn that they also have an unlawful retaliation claim.
Unlawful retaliation claims are actionable when an employee complains about the discrimination that he or she is experiencing based on a protected class, and the employer responds by retaliating against the employee. Retaliation is not limited to termination. It can also include demotion, reduction in hours or other changes to the job that make it less desirable.
