Minnesota Statutes §364.021: Public and Private Employment; Consideration of Criminal Records.
Employers may not inquire into an applicant’s criminal history during the initial stage of the employment process. Questions regarding criminal history may not be on the employment application form. Inquiries into criminal history can only be made after the candidate has been selected for an interview, or if there is no interview, when the candidate has received a conditional offer of employment. This standard applies to ALL employers in Minnesota.
