Employment At Will in Minnesota

My employer won’t give me a reason why they terminated me. How do I get one?

An employer must give a truthful reason why an employee was terminated, if requested in writing by the employee. Request must be made in writing by the employee within 15 working days of termination. The employer has 10 working days from receipt of the request to give a truthful reason in writing for the termination.

My employer fired me for reasons I think are unfair and may be a wrongful termination. What can I do?

Minnesota is an employment “at will” state. The employer can fire any employee for any reason as long as that reason is not illegal. If you feel you were terminated because of discrimination based on race, creed, color, sex, national origin, ancestry, religion, age, disability, sexual orientation or marital status, contact the Minnesota Department of Human Rights at (651) 296-5663 or 1-800-657-3704.

There may be other actions, such as wrongful discharge or whistleblower protection under Minnesota Statutes 181.932 or other causes of action; such actions may require legal assistance by an employment law attorney.

Does my employer have to give me two-weeks notice before terminating me? Do I have to give them two-weeks notice?

No notice of separation is required by law, by either party, upon separation of an employee for any reason. Courtesy and time to collect accrued benefits are reasons why notice is given.
