MDHR receives complaints of discrimination, conducts investigations and then makes a determination based on the evidence.
We act as a neutral enforcement agency when investigating charges of discrimination until "probable cause" is established.
Then, we attempt to negotiate settlement.
If unsuccessful, we may refer matter to office of Minnesota attorney general for litigation. Find out more about our Complaint Handling Process here.
Deadline: For Filing a Claim
You must file a charge within one year of when the discrimination occurred or when you learned of the discrimination. If you fail to file your charge within one year, you will lose your ability to obtain relief under the Human Rights Act.

The Minnesota Human Rights Act is the state's comprehensive civil rights law that prohibits discrimination in business, credit, education, employment, housing, public accommodations and public services.
