From employment discrimination and disciplinary action cases to labor disputes and Veterans’ Preference violations, we have helped many clients throughout Minneapolis, St. Paul, and western Wisconsin find solutions to their employment law matter.

When you work with us, you are provided with strong advocacy that is backed by highly experienced trial lawyers that are adept to achieving favorable results for clients. The Minneapolis employment law lawyer that you will work with knows both state and federal law, particularly in the area of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Minnesota Human Rights Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the Family Medical Leave Act. If you have experienced a violation of any of these important laws or you have been accused of a violation, you need to hire an experienced attorney as soon as possible.

Minnesota Employment Law Attorney Focused On Resolving Discrimination Matters

We represent individual employees and small businesses that have been accused of or must bring about a lawsuit for any of the following:

  • Pregnancy discrimination
  • FMLA lawsuits
  • Sexual harassment
  • Disability discrimination and not providing reasonable accommodation as stipulated by the Americans with Disabilities Act
  • Employment discrimination on the basis of age, race, sex, religion, national origin, family medical leave, or pregnancy
  • Veterans’ Preference violations
  • Violations of the Uniform Services Employee Rights Act and Re-employment Act

If you have experienced any of these violations or you are an employer who has been accused of such a violation, it is imperative to speak to an attorney as soon as possible so you can work toward resolving the matter in an informed and prompt manner.

Protecting The Rights Of Employees And Union Members

Both union and non-union employees have rights. One of the common areas in which employees have an issue with their employer is in the case of wage and hour disputes. It is possible for an employer to be held liable for violating the Fair Labor Standards Act. There are also laws in Minnesota that require the employer to pay no less than a specific wage, to pay overtime when it is earned, and to allocate tips in a specified way.

In the case of union employees, we have represented labor unions, consulting them on unfair labor practices, litigation in regards to collective bargaining agreements, and safety or environmental violations. We are very well aware of how labor unions bargain with employers under the Employee Free Choice Act. The role that we play is a consultative one in which we keep our union clients informed of important issues and developments and we are always prepared to respond to the law changes that could have an impact on their bargaining position, rights, and their benefits.
