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.

Our Affirmative Action Plans explain how DEED works to achieve equal opportunity for all.

Know Your Right to Fair Treatment


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.

DEED also efforts to make documents on our website accessible. However, if you are an individual with a disability who has trouble accessing a document on our website, please contact DEED.Accessibility@state.mn.us to receive that document in alternative formats.


If you think you have been subjected to discrimination under a DEED program or activity, you may file a complaint with DEED's Office of Diversity and Equal Opportunity by completing this complaint form and mail, email or fax it to:
