In most cases, Minnesota employees understand that a certain rapport should exist in the workplace. But, if an employee in Minnesota or other states across the nation experience unequal or unfair treatment, they may want to consider taking steps to correct it. In matters involving workplace discrimination, employees should be aware of their rights and their ability to file a cause of action. Although the civil rights of employees are often understood, some question how they go about filing a claim for employment discrimination.
According to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (or EEOC), when discrimination occurs in the workplace, an employee is afforded the right to file a claim against their employer. In order to initiate the claim, the employee should file the claim to one of the 53 EEOC field offices and should consider filing it with the one closest to their place of residence.
