Equal Opportunity

Equal Opportunity is the Law

The Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) is an equal opportunity employer and program provider.

No one will be denied the opportunity to participate in DEED's programs, employment, or promotion, based on race, color, creed, marital status, status with regard to public assistance, disability, genetic information, sexual orientation, age, religion, national origin, sex, or membership in a local human rights commission.

DEED's Affirmative Action Plan explains how DEED works to achieve equal opportunity for all.

Accessibility

DEED is committed to making its websites accessible to all persons. As a state agency within the Minnesota.gov portal, DEED follows the portal’s guidelines; see:

If you have comments or concerns about the accessibility of DEED's websites, or about any state-agency websites, use the Minnesota E-Government Accessibility/Usability Comment Form

Auxiliary aids and services are available upon request to individuals with disabilities.
