Workplace Discrimination Archives

Many male employees suffer from workplace discrimination

It is a well-known fact that American women have struggled against workplace discrimination for countless decades. It's probably impossible to identify the first female worker who spoke out against such discrimination. Workplace discrimination against women is still very much a problem here in Michigan and across the country, but male workers also experience discrimination.

Workplace discrimination: What constitutes wrongful termination?

The nation's at-will employment laws means that you can lose your job for any reason or no reason at all. For example, perhaps your employer is bleeding profits and is looking to downsize. The at-will law means that you could be fired or laid off even if you have done nothing wrong at work. This same law empowers Detroit workers to leave a job voluntarily for any reason or no reason at all.

Detroit taproom closes down amid workplace discrimination scandal

If you follow the news at all, you are probably aware of the workplace discrimination scandal involving the Founders Brewing Company's Detroit taproom. One of its former employees has accused the company of workplace discrimination based on race.

You can do your own part to help end workplace discrimination

Workplace discrimination continues to be a problem for the Detroit workforce. Despite the laws specifically written to protect workers, discrimination based on age, religion, disability and many other factors still happens.

STEM careers are those in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math. Historically, these are areas that have seen far more male workers than female workers, though the workplace in 2019 is certainly supposed to offer equal opportunities to all workers, regardless of gender.

Recent discrimination suit shows why fast action is necessary

If you have ever been a victim of workplace harassment, you probably waited a long time before you even considered legal action. Many people hesitate because they hope the behavior will stop on its own. Another reason for hesitation is because victims might not be completely certain that discrimination is occurring.

What are the basic rights of American workers?

The United States needs a solid and dependable workforce to continue thriving. Ideally, this workforce should not suffer from workplace discrimination or harassment. Most people are willing to work hard in exchange for fair payment and proper treatment. On the unfortunate side of this issue, there are far too many people that undermine the American workforce by mistreating employees or co-workers.

A look at the most recent workplace discrimination statistics

Many victims of workplace discrimination in the Detroit region believe that they will never find a satisfactory solution. If you are one of these victims and have run out of hope, information released by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) may rekindle your faith in the system.

What does it take to prove workplace discrimination?

In all American states, including Michigan, it is against the law to discriminate against workers because of age, gender, race, disability other protected attributes. Unfortunately, many employers continue to break these laws because it can be difficult to prove any unlawful behavior occurred. Without real, tangible evidence to rely on in a legal setting, workplace discrimination claims can fail.

Pregnant women have protected rights in Michigan workplaces

For many women and couples, starting a family requires much careful consideration, especially for families in which the woman works. One of the most common concerns is how the mother's decision to get pregnant might affect her career. In all 50 states, it is illegal to engage in workplace discrimination against pregnant women, but what does that truly mean?
