Glass ceiling discrimination at work

A person's qualifications and experience are sometimes not enough to secure employment. Sometimes, this is due to discrimination that is common in many workplaces, including some in Michigan. Workplace discrimination can relate to the employee's gender, age, race, sex, religion or even pregnancy, all of which may result in the person not being hired, being paid a lower salary or suffering harassment.

Contacting an EEO counselor in order to file a complaint

An employee can be discriminated against by their employers either during the selection process or during employment. When this happens, that person can contact an Equal Employment Opportunity Counselor. The EEO counselor can be contacted at the job site or from the site where the person had applied for the job. However, the application should be done within 45 days from the day the discrimination incident occurred.

UAW preparing for new employment contracts with The Big Three

Detroit residents are very familiar with the three biggest names in the American automotive industry: General Motors, Ford and Chrysler, collectively known as the "Big Three". In one year, these three companies will be entering into employment contract negotiations with the United Auto Workers union for the first time since 2011. The UAW represents almost 400,000 workers employed with the Big Three. This may be the biggest challenge to date for the recently appointed president of the UAW.

What should Michigan workers know about retaliation?

Companies in Michigan are required by law to respect employment rights. They are also prohibited from engaging in illegal activities. An employee who is aware of such violations or has been a victim can report the incident to the proper authorities. However, there are situations where an employee, who is known as a whistleblower after reporting an incident, can experience improper treatment from the company or from superiors. This is referred to as retaliation.

Michigan workers and wrongful termination

With the U.S. economy still languishing, holding on to a job is crucial for many Americans, including Michigan residents. Losing a job always spells trouble for employees who work hard to provide for their families. For this reason, it is important for fired workers who suspect wrongful termination, to fight for their cause. Our Michigan law firm has extensive experience and knowledge in this aspect of the law and is more than willing to help workers address this kind of situation to their advantage.
