Residents of Michigan who are employed may be aware of their rights according to the state. One of the basic rights given to employees is freedom from workplace discrimination. Employers are not allowed to discriminate against their employees for any reason other than work performance.
All employees are entitled to compensation in the event of any injury suffered in the workplace or while working for that particular employer. If an employee believes that they were unfairly terminated from the job, that employee can challenge the decision in court. Employees are also protected against any wrongful deduction in the salary or delinquent payment of wages.
Under Michigan’s Payment of Wages and Fringe Benefits Act of 1978, all employers are required to fulfill certain responsibilities. Employers should have all relevant data pertaining to a worker, including the demographic details and hours that the person works. Benefits and perks awarded to the worker should also be recorded. In the event of a violation of this rule, the employer may be subject to civil penalties.
If an employer is ordered to appear in court for any alleged violation of the workers’ rights, the person may present a strong defense with the help of a knowledgeable attorney. Injuries that occur at work may be presented as a previous injury that was unrelated to the employee’s work. Such cases may require the intervention of medical professionals and relevant investigation reports. In some cases, employees who do not have a job contract may be suddenly terminated by an employer. In all such cases, legal representation is a really good idea.
The attorneys at our law firm aggressively pursue such cases and try to ensure that the employee’s rights are protected. We provide professional guidance when it comes to filing a complaint against any such violation. Our goal is to help our clients obtain justice and the compensation that they deserve.
