Workplace Discrimination Archives

What constitutes age-related workplace discrimination?

In the United States, all citizens have the right to acquire gainful employment regardless of their age. Employers must abide by these laws and refrain from engaging in workplace discrimination because of a worker's age. Like other forms of workplace discrimination, age discrimination is often confusing to workers. As a result, many of them might not know if discrimination is occurring.

Workplace discrimination can begin during the interview process

Have you ever been interviewed for a job and began to feel uncomfortable during the process? These awkward or downright unsettling interviews typically begin well but may begin to deteriorate if the interviewer begins to ask uncomfortable questions. Before you know it, the tone of the interview has made you feel more like a target instead of a potential employee.

FMLA discrimination and your rights

For many of us, our jobs do not provide enough paid sick time to deal with a serious illness to ourselves or a family member that may require an extended absence from work. That is where the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) comes in for workers in Michigan and across the country.

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act: One of MLK's great successes

In celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, let's take a look at one of the achievements of the civil rights leader and all those who stood with him: The Civil Rights Act of 1964.

LGBT workers in Michigan have options when facing discrimination

While same-sex marriage may now be legal in Michigan and across the United States, federal and state anti-discrimination laws are still murky as to whether they protect against workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation.

Signs you've been discriminated against at work

In a perfect world everyone in the workplace would be hired and judged based on their skill and merit - not on their gender, age, sexual preference, religious beliefs, or any other category that sets them apart from others. In reality, this may be far from the case.

Race discrimination alleged by former law enforcement officer

There is a misplaced belief that in Michigan and across the United States that various forms of discrimination are in the past, and all people will be treated equally based on the work they do. Unfortunately, it is not the case. People are still confronted with numerous forms of workplace discrimination. This can be race discrimination, discrimination based on gender, age, sexual orientation and much more. Those who are subjected to this treatment might not even be aware that they may in certain circumstances be able to seek compensation through a legal filing. Knowing what is legal and illegal and how to move forward with a case is key to achieving justice.

MI corrections department faces workplace discrimination case

Employment discrimination cases in Michigan often center on an individual's complaint about violations of employee rights, losing a job, or retaliation for raising an issue with the employer. Some cases, however, have to do with workplace discrimination that reaches a level in which the federal government will get involved and take the case on behalf of a group of workers who claim to have been treated unfairly. Those who have a case that might involve behaviors that are so egregious that the Justice Department should get involved need to know how to pursue their claim.

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.
