Employees in Minnesota understand that bad workweeks happen, and some might even make career changes due to the work environment not being a proper fit. Despite this, employees should not quit or be terminated for improper reasons. A wrongful termination could be based on employment discrimination. When an employer bases their hiring and firing decisions on the specific characteristics of the employee, this could be ground for a civil action.
It was recently confirmed that the former director of the Northfield Area Chamber of Commerce filed discrimination charges against the Northfield Chamber. These claims date from November 2013 when she was presumably terminated. Months after the incident, the former director contacted the Minnesota Department of Human Rights to establish whether investigation of her termination was warranted.
