- The Minnesota Human Rights Act (MHRA) is broader than federal nondiscrimination statutes. It includes additional protected classes and provides greater protection to some classes already covered by federal laws. See Minnesota Human Rights Act.
- Unlike federal statutes, the MHRA covers all employers in Minnesota, even those with only a single employee. See Minnesota Human Rights Act.
- Through additional statutes, Minnesota employers are also prohibited from discriminating against employees or applicants based on other specified reasons, such as military service or lawful activities outside of work. See Discrimination Under Other Laws.
