Job Description

The Office of Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison is seeking an experienced lawyer to build and lead an enhanced effort to enforce workers’ rights. The attorney will primarily be responsible for creating and overseeing this effort, including identifying enforcement and litigation priorities, developing legal strategies, and determining goals and metrics for assessing impact. The position will involve collaboration with worker organizations and advocacy groups, other government agencies, and employer associations. This attorney will lead initiatives to improve the working conditions of Minnesotans by using the office’s authority to protect workers’ wages and ensure lawful treatment of employees. The attorney will conduct and supervise investigations and litigation addressing systemic violations of workplace rights laws.

This position is a rare opportunity to help build a new priority area within the Attorney General’s office, and requires a dynamic individual with excellent legal and interpersonal skills as well as the ability to work creatively and collaboratively.
