Minnesota Marital Status Discrimination Attorney

Marital Status Discrimination

The Minnesota Human Rights Act (MHRA) makes it illegal for employers to discriminate against employees because of their marital status. This legislation defines legal status as the following:

  • Single
  • Married
  • Remarried
  • Divorced
  • Separated
  • Surviving spouse (widowed/widower)

Most violations of the MHRA occur when two employees of the same firm are married, and one is terminated for cause, and then the company decides to terminate the other, out of fear by the employer that the remaining employee can no longer be trusted.

If a married couple has one partner married to a spouse who publicly talks against a social or political policy the company favors, and then the employer retaliates against the employee-spouse, causing the spouse to suffer costs or penalties, that is an illegal workplace practice.
