Familial Status Discrimination

Minneapolis Familial Status Discrimination Attorneys

familial status discriminationBalancing parenting and work can be a challenge. But having children should never make your work more difficult because an employer uses your role as a parent against you. At LeBlanc Law & Mediation, a Minneapolis employment law firm, our attorneys are dedicated to protecting the rights of parents in the workplace.

Parents, guardians and designated caregivers can experience employment discrimination in a variety of ways, including:

  • Being passed over for promotion
  • Having fewer training opportunities offered
  • Receiving unequal pay for work performed
  • Being terminated

Twin Cities Employment Lawyers Fighting For The Rights of Parents

In 2014, the Women’s Economic Security Act amended the Minnesota Human Rights Act to add familial status as a protected class. Familial status refers to having one or more minor children living with an individual who is either:

  • The child’s parent(s) or legal guardian(s); or
  • Someone designated in writing by the child’s parent(s) or guardian(s).

The protections against discrimination also extend to any person who is pregnant or in the process of securing legal custody of a minor.
