Minnesota Hostile Work Environment Attorney

Hostile Work Environments in Minnesota

It is not legal to permit, nurture, or produce a hostile work environment in Minnesota, if the reason for it is fueled by an employee’s nationality, sexual orientation, race, sex, gender, or disability. Minnesota law will usually require an employee to show proof that their coworkers’ behavior is to such a high degree of severity and persistence, that it has produced a hostile work environment.

What Are Some Examples of a Hostile Work Environment?

Keep in mind that a hostile work environment can come in many forms.  These are a couple of common examples of a hostile work environment:

  • Physical violence, or threats of violence, directed at an employee due to their sexual orientation, gender, age, race, or disability.  These threats can be conveyed verbally, or can be written.  Written threats can be left anonymously as well.
  • Recurring use of slurs, which can be based on an employee’s gender or race, for example.  Other recurring language that is inappropriate and offensive that is directed at a specific employee due to their age, sexual orientation, gender, disability, or race.
