Discrimination against Transgender Individuals in the Workplace is Illegal in Minnesota

Under the MHRA’s “sexual orientation” definition, transgender individuals are included as protected classes of persons if they have a “self-image or identity not traditionally associated with one’s biological maleness or femaleness.”
