North Dakota enforces both state and federal laws regarding employee discrimination. Of course no laws are effective if no one knows about them. So, it’s also a law that the North Dakota state discrimination posters be displayed in the workplace. The North Dakota state discrimination posters outline the rights and protections that workers are afforded by the law. These posters need to be displayed in an area where employees will be able to see them.
The North Dakota state discrimination posters let employees know that they can’t be discriminated against because of their race, religion, age (if forty or over), national origin, disability, marital status, sex, receiving public assistance, or taking part in any lawful activity outside of work. No qualified person can be refused a job, not promoted, fired, transferred, demoted, or disciplined because of one of the reasons just mentioned.
An employee should know where the North Dakota state discrimination posters are and what information they contain. If a person feels that he/she has been a victim of discrimination, that person should file a complaint with the North Dakota Human Rights Division. The complaint should be filed as soon as possible because an employee has only three hundred days to file such a complaint.
The discrimination complaint must be filed by the alleged victim filling out an intake form for the North Dakota Human Rights Division. The alleged victim can either personally visit the Division and fill-out the form, call and have someone fill-out the form for him/her, or fill-out the form and mail it in.
Both employers and employees have responsibilities when it comes to the North Dakota state discrimination posters. Employers need to make sure they display the posters in the correct area and employees need to make sure they know where the North Dakota state discrimination posters are and what information is contained on them.
