Yes, you appear to have a potential claim. The employer cannot discriminate against you because your girlfriend is pregnant based on a line of discrimination cases, where the person is discriminated against for their association with a person in a protected category. Although no one can say for certain you have a case without all of the details, you should contact an employment law attorney because you appear to have a potential claim.See question

The law states:
Minnesota Statute Section 181.939 NURSING MOTHERS.
(a) An employer must provide reasonable unpaid break time each day to an employee who needs to express breast milk for her infant child. The break time must, if possible, run concurrently with any break time already provided to the employee. An employer is not required to provide break time under this section if to do so would unduly disrupt the operations of the employer.
(b) The employer must make reasonable efforts to provide a room or other location, in close proximity to the work area, other than a bathroom or a toilet stall, that is shielded from view and free from intrusion from coworkers and the public and that includes access to an electrical outlet, where the employee can express her milk in privacy.
(d) An employer may not retaliate against an employee for asserting rights or remedies under the statute.
She can get support from:
Her local La Leche League group (http://www.llli.org or (612) 992-4996)) with specific questions. For more information on breastfeeding in the workplace, visit the Minnesota Breastfeeding Coalition’s website at http://mnbreastfeedingcoalition.org.
To file a complaint or report a violation under Minnesota law, she can contact the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry at (651) 284-5005, or toll-free at 1-800-342-5354.
She could also report the legal violation to her employer since a retaliation for that report would be illegal and provide civil remedies.See question
I just started working somewhere knew and I had plans made for a weekend I told them the first week I worked I wouldn't be able to work that weekend but the scheduled me and said they couldn't give it to me off because too many people asked for it...
You asked: Can a company deny your time off when you first start working?
The general answer is yes. An attorney would need more specifics on the situation, but generally there are very few constraints on employer scheduling in Minnesota. If you told them, after you already started employment, that you wanted or needed the weekend off you are in line with the other workers who have more seniority.
If you had told them before starting that you couldn't work that weekend then they would be on shakier ground but that is not the case here.See question
I worked at Claire's for two weeks, because management was terrible. I quit by leaving and never returned for a shift. When I went back for my paycheck it was a pay card. (This was about a month ago.) I spent two days trying to activate it, I ca...
You asked: Can I sue Claire's for not giving me my last paycheck?
If you are not paid by the next regular payday, then if you make a written demand to them they must pay you within 24 hours or they are subject to up to 15 days daily wage penalty under Minn. Stats Sec, 181.14 and attorney fees and costs under Minnesota Statutes Section 181.171.
I would send them a written demand for payment and cite Minn. Stats. Sec. 181.14. If they still don't pay you can sue.See question
I'm currently on FMLA from my work and my CPR certification expired while on FMLA. Ordinarily I would take a cpr class at work to renew it. Can/should I renew my CPR certification while on FMLA? As a nurse, it needs to be current.
Would you be going in to work to renew the license? The issue would be the perception that you can attend the class while still being permitted leave from the job. We would need to know the nature of the leave to adequately respond since the response will hinge in part on the terms of the leave.See question
I got told I was finally getting a full time maintenance man that him an his wife will be combing in a month so then I had ask is his wife taking office over I'm I loosening my job they said no. Then the following weeks to come they were asking f...
Your question is unclear but if you leave before you are replaced you will risk losing unemployment. If the question is whether you have a lawsuit based on your termination because the new maintenance man's wife will now be running the office, we would need to know the reason for the termination as well as more details concerning the termination specifics.
Since this is "not for sure yet" we would be guessing until you are actually terminated. If that happens it will be important to provide the reason they give you for the termination.See question

Your boss fired you but wants to claim that you resigned for unemployment purposes. You should file for unemployment anyway. According to what you've stated you were fired and did not resign. He is going to claim that you resigned to your co-worker but you clarified that claim.See question
I worked 120 hours my last pay period. My manager fixed my time punches, claiming I only worked 100 hours. When I confronted him on this he said he was going to force the shift leads to pay me because he didn't know I was working. When he gave me ...
You asked: can my manager sue me for not knowing I was working?
No, your Manager has no legal standing for that type of lawsuit, and the company must pay overtime because the work was tolerated. So the threat is an idol threat, but the company has exposure for the unpaid overtime.
got jumped on the clock at my bar by 8 men while doing regular duties before closing. employer violated many rules that contributed to this never filled insurance at the end of it and was ultimately fired with in a month
You asked: Is there a statute that says you can't sue an employer for personal injury if there are personal relationships in the work place?
The answer is complicated, because the employer's insurance will want to claim an "assault" exception to a workers compensation claim. That claim could might be to your benefit because you could potentially recover more in a personal injury/negligence claim than a workers compensation claim but you will still need to consult with a workers compensation attorney since the assault occurred at work.
Also, when they didn't file an insurance claim, and they fired you within a month there is a reasonable chance that the employer violated Minnesota Statute Section 176.82 which prohibits retaliation and impairment to a workers compensation claim. The hyperlink to that statute is:
The next step would be to call an experienced employment attorney and ask for a referral to a workers compensation attorney. The two of them will both need to both evaluate the case and they likely will need to work together on the case since the retaliation claim will be separate from the injury claim unless the assault exception applies.See question
