After experiencing workplace discrimination, understanding how long you have to file a claim is critical. There are time limits for filing most legal claims, which are known as statutes of limitation. Waiting too long to file a claim can result in the statute of limitations running out, and the claim being legally barred forever.
In Minnesota, the statute of limitations for most workplace discrimination cases is one year. Different states have different statutes of limitation, and if you do not work in Minnesota, the time limit for filing an employment discrimination claim will depend on the laws of the jurisdiction in which the discrimination occurred. If you are unsure of the statute of limitations that may apply to your claim, you should speak to an employment discrimination lawyer immediately to ensure you don’t miss any potentially applicable deadlines to file a claim; contact our team today.
