Compared to federal law, Minnesota anti-discrimination laws provide Minnesota workers with stronger and more robust protections in the workplace for LGBTQ employees.
The Minnesota Human Rights Act makes it plainly illegal for employers to:
- refuse to hire or to maintain a system of employment which unreasonably excludes a person seeking employment; or
- discharge an employee; or
- discriminate against a person with respect to hiring, tenure, compensation, terms, upgrading, conditions, facilities, or privileges of employment because of, among other things, the employee’s “sexual orientation,” which includes a person's gender identity
