Minnesota employers should know that discriminating against workers can get them into trouble. State and federal laws prohibit discrimination against employees and potential employees based on gender, race, religion, disability, nationality, and other protected classes--including age. But what feels like discrimination to a candidate or current employee may seem completely legitimate to an employer.
The relationship between an employer and employee can be fragile. When both parties see eye-to-eye and are happy with compensation, benefits and performance, everyone can be productive. Howe ver, it may not take much to rock the boat.
