Workplace Discrimination Archives

Michigan family: Restaurant violated ADA by refusing to serve us

A Michigan woman and her daughters were refused service at a Westland Golden Corral because the manager was frightened by their genetic skin condition, according to a lawsuit filed by federal prosecutors.

Advocates press Obama for more LGBT protections in the workplace

Two weeks ago, we wrote about how the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's Detroit office was looking for cases that it believed would help it shore up protection for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender employees in Michigan.

Stuttering police officer claims discrimination, retaliation after dismissal from force

Although we practice in Michigan, we try to stay abreast of what is happening in our region because we know it is important to stay well-informed. The other day, an employment law-related story out of Ohio caught our eye.

EEOC: National origin discrimination claims on the rise

The U.S. is often described as The Great Melting Pot. The American identity is a mosaic made up of elements of many unique cultures that combine to create our own unique profile. It would be hard to imagine Detroit, for example, without the European, Middle Eastern and Southern U.S. immigrants who came here to work in the automobile industry.

Dillard's to pay $2M to settle disability discrimination class action suit

Department store chain Dillard's recently announced that it will pay $2 million to settle claims that it practiced workplace discrimination by asking employees who were using sick time to provide detailed medical information regarding why they needed the time off from work.

Did CBS violate Jennifer Esposito's rights under the Americans With Disabilities Act?

The owner of several Panera Bread franchises recently agreed to pay $76,000 to settle a class action lawsuit filed by black workers who alleged that they were discriminated against for being black.

Do we need obesity-specific anti-discrimination laws?

By now, we hope that Detroit readers understand that a workplace cannot discriminate on the basis of sex, race, ability/disability or religion. Those are pretty firmly set "protected classes," meaning demographics that courts and lawmakers have realized are sometimes discriminated against and so have expressly said such conduct is not okay.
