The North Dakota Department of Labor enforces the Human Rights Act. The Department has the authority to receive and investigate discrimination complaints and to attempt to obtain voluntary compliance through informal advice, negotiation, or conciliation (ND Cent. Code Sec. 14-02.4-20).
Individuals who feel they have been injured in violation of the Act may file a complaint with the Department of Labor and may also bring a private lawsuit in state court. Remedies may include temporary or permanent injunctions, equitable relief, back pay, and legal fees.
