Discrimination in public service is illegal in Minnesota

Under the Minnesota Human Rights Act, public service is a “protected area.” And it is illegal to treat you differently in public service because of your:

  • Race
  • Color
  • Creed
  • Religion
  • National origin
  • Sex
  • Disability
  • Public assistance status
  • Sexual orientation

These are called “protected classes.” There are some exceptions about how each class is covered under the Minnesota Human Rights Act.
