Minnesota law allows any state employee to refuse to accept the duty of offering family-planning services if the duty is contrary to personal beliefs. A refusal may not be grounds for dismissal, suspension, demotion, or any other discrimination in employment.

The law, enacted in 1978, does not require refusing individuals to provide notification or referrals to patients seeking family-planning services.

However, the law does require the directors or supervisors of the refusing employee to reassign that employees duties in order to properly carry out family-planning services.
