See Minneapolis’ Civil Rights process in action at hearing March 6

March 3, 2014 (MINNEAPOLIS) The Minneapolis Department of Civil Rights has announced the Minneapolis Commission on Civil Rights will hold a public hearing on an employment discrimination claim on March 6, 2014 at 8:30 a.m. The public hearing is intended to allow both parties to have an opportunity to be heard, and it is a chance for community members to participate and observe the process the City uses to enforce its anti-discrimination laws. The hearing will be held in the Frey Moot Courtroom at the University of St. Thomas School of Law at 1000 LaSalle Ave.

The Minneapolis Department of Civil Rights previously investigated this employment discrimination claim and issued a finding of probable cause. A finding of probable cause means that based upon a reasonable and impartial view of the evidence gathered during the investigation, the Department believes that more likely than not, discrimination was a substantial factor that motivated the Respondent’s actions.
