Dedicated Attorneys Providing Employment Litigation and Counseling Services

Employers sometimes fire employees for the wrong reasons, discriminate against them because of sex, age, race, national origin, disability or sexual orientation, and do not properly pay workers for their services.

Culberth & Lienemann, LLP, in St. Paul, strives to ensure workers receive fair treatment in the workplace. We routinely try employment discrimination and harassment cases in the courtroom, and at agencies such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Minnesota Department of Human Rights.

What Is Employment Discrimination?

The law prohibits making employment decisions based upon race, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, familial status, ethnicity, disability, age or association with others. Illegal discrimination does not always result in termination of a job. Sometimes it involves a demotion, failure to receive a promotion, discrimination in the terms and conditions of employment or reduction in pay.

As seasoned employment attorneys, we represent workers in every type of discrimination and retaliation case. This includes wage and hour disputes, unfair hiring practices, whistleblower or retaliation claims, and hostile work environment lawsuits.
