The Human Rights Division of the Department of Human Rights and Equal Economic Opportunity (HREEO) is responsible for investigating complaints of discrimination that have taken place within the City of Saint Paul.  

Note: The Human Rights Division is a neutral, fact-finding agency and does not represent either party in its investigations. 

* However, please note that as a matter of practice, to avoid any appearance of a conflict of interest, we do not investigate charges of discrimination filed against another department of the City.

The City of Saint Paul Code of Ordinance - Chapter 183 empowers the Human Rights Division to investigate human rights complaints on the basis of:  

  • Race
  • Color
  • Religion
  • Creed
  • Age
  • Disability
  • Marital Status
  • Familial Status 
  • Sex
  • Sexual or Affectional Orientation
  • National Origin
  • Ancestry
  • Status with regard to Public Assistance

Human Rights Specialists
Our Human Rights Specialists conduct investigations based on complaints the division receives. Upon investigation of a complaint and applicable law, Human Rights Specialists make a recommendation of Probable Cause (PC) or No Probable Cause (NPC) subject to the approval of the Director.  Human Rights Specialists may also facilitate Pre-Determination Settlement Agreements (PDSA) and conciliation sessions when there is a finding of PC.
