Agency Description/Mission: The Division of Human Rights is responsible for processing charges of employment discrimination under federal statutes and the North Dakota Human Rights Act (NDCC § 14-02.4). In October 1987, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) designated the North Dakota Department of Labor as a Fair Employment Practices Agency (FEPA). The federal statutes include Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended; the Age Discrimination in Employment Act; and the Americans with Disabilities Act. In addition, the North Dakota Human Rights Act permits the North Dakota Department of Labor to process charges of employment discrimination that do not meet federal jurisdiction. The complaints may include issues of marital status, public assistance, and lawful activity off the employer's premises during non-working hours which is not in direct conflict with the essential business-related functions of the employer.

“Bezos, Our Backs Are Tired”: Amazon Workers Strike on Prime Day

On Monday afternoon, in the blistering heat of a 95-degree day, approximately 50 Amazon workers and community supporters rallied outside of a suburban Minnesota Amazon warehouse chanting, “We work, We sweat, Amazon workers need a rest!” That chant was followed by, “Hey Jeff Bezos! Our backs are tired and our funds are low!"

Thought for the Week

"For much of our nation's history, people of color — particularly women — have been marginalized and discriminated against simply because of their hair style or texture. By signing this bill into law, we are taking an important step toward correcting that history and ensuring people of color are protected from all forms of discrimination."

– Gov. Andrew Cuomo
