The workplace can be a very diverse atmosphere, filled with employees of different races, cultures, religions and ages. Despite this being a naturally occurring and beneficial characteristic in the work environment, some employees in Minnesota and other states across the nation experience mistreatment, harassment or discrimination because of their differences. When employment discrimination occurs, it is important that employees understand how to speak out about their experience or the experience of others in order to protect their civil rights.
In Minnesota, and elsewhere in the nation, employees come for all different faiths. In some cases, religious beliefs or faiths are the reason that some employees are mistreated or discriminated against. Employees should be aware that they have employee rights, and any discrimination based on any characteristic, including religious belief, is against the law.
