A former Detroit Foundation Hotel worker sues for discrimination

A human resources coordinator, who worked for the Detroit Foundation Hotel up until last year, has filed a discrimination lawsuit against her former employer. In her federal court filing, she outlines how the hotel's management referred to her other African-American colleagues using derogatory language. She also notes that they weren't given promotions because of their skin color.

Putting a tight focus on executive employment contract clauses

Many employment attorneys talk about what executive contracts should and should not contain. We have written about and discussed contract clauses several times in our legal blog. These topics are important to executives concerned about protecting themselves, but sometimes, these discussions are a bit too general.

Workplace discrimination can occur during the hiring process

All over the Detroit region and other Michigan cities, more and more employees are standing up against workplace discrimination. This is a sign of growing awareness about these issues across the nation. However, it is crucial for workers to understand that discrimination can occur before employment even begins.

Governor's directive protects gay, transgender state employees

Michigan's new governor, Gretchen Whitmer, recently signed an executive order that protects lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) state employees from discrimination. It also requires that the same protections extend to employees who work for companies that do business with the state, such as state contractors, or businesses that receive state loans, grants and such.

Understanding the nation's whistleblower laws

The laws that govern our nation are quite complex, making it difficult for those without a legal education to understand them in-depth. To make matters even more confusing, laws change frequently as the country continues to evolve and grow. New laws are passed as needed and outdated laws are removed as they become obsolete.

Think twice before you sign that executive-level contract

If you are on the hunt for an executive-level position, you might be tempted to take the first offer that comes your way -- especially if you really want to work for a particular company. No matter how excited you are about your prospects, however, it is usually wiser to wait a little before signing a contract. This gives you some time to review its terms and decide whether you should accept the contract as written or negotiate for better terms.

3 workers to sue a Dearborn Tim Hortons for race discrimination
