Were you fired because of age discrimination?

Age discrimination is real and as the baby boomer generation gets older, it's only becoming more widespread. This kind of discrimination might be subtle and difficult to pinpoint in some cases. A job applicant could simply get passed up because he's over 50 -- but the hiring manager says it's because he's unqualified. It could also be overt and obvious when a manager asks an employee, "Aren't you ever going to retire?"

What can I do to stop workplace discrimination?

Imagine you've been working at a Detroit manufacturing facility for years, and suddenly, you look around and notice that everyone you see at work is from one racial demographic. After looking deeper into the practice you discover that there could be a terrible reason why your black and Latino friends were denied their job applications and why you were denied the last several promotions: Job-related racial discrimination.

Example of a successful whistleblower retaliation suit

If you witness wrongful or unlawful activity at your workplace, you have every right to report that activity to your superior — or to the authorities — without fear of negative employment consequences. If your employer decides to retaliate against you for reporting such information, i.e., for being a whistleblower, you might be able to pursue justice and financial restitution by filing a whistleblower retaliation lawsuit in federal court.

How can I tell if my termination was a breach of contract?

Wrongful termination can happen in numerous different ways. For example, Michigan employees might be wrongfully terminated as a result of racial discrimination or as a result of retaliation for making a complaint about sexual harassment. In other cases, an employee could be wrongfully terminated in a way that violates his or her employment contract.
