Former Flint city administrator alleges wrongful termination

A former city administrator in Michigan has filed a whistleblower lawsuit claiming that she was wrongfully terminated after making allegations that the mayor was steering money meant for families affected by the Flint water crisis to a campaign fund. The 39-year-old woman says she was fired in February because she reported the allegations to the city attorney and sought an investigation into the mayor’s alleged misconduct. She says she was informed of the alleged misdeeds by another city employee. After she reported the information, she was fired.

Can job hazards justify pregnancy discrimination in Michigan?

There are various legal protections in place in Michigan to address workplace discrimination against a woman who is pregnant. However, there are areas of nuance that might not be clearly covered by the law or fully known by women. One such nuance arises when there is a hazard in the workplace that can potentially put the fetus in danger. Pregnant women in this situation need to know their legal rights.

Woman alleges workplace discrimination at Michigan company

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission recently filed a lawsuit against a Michigan manufacturer of milk and juice, alleging that the company engaged in workplace discrimination against female employees. According to the lawsuit, the company repeatedly failed to promote a female employee due to her gender. The woman's experience and time working at the company were significant, but she was continually left behind in favor of male employees when promotion opportunities arose. The EEOC is requesting an injunction to stop the company from repeating this behavior as well as financial compensation for this particular woman.
