Work discrimination facts: Sexual orientation and gender identity

According to a 2015 report, over percent of Americans in the workforce identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT). Michigan is home to a prominent LGBT community, with over 180,000 of these citizens in the state's workforce. Unfortunately, workplace discrimination against these residents is a problem in Michigan, just as it is in many other states.

Crack the glass ceiling and help end workplace discrimination

If each of the women working in Detroit took a swing at a sheet of thick glass, what do you imagine might happen? Every strike would crack the glass until the entire thing shattered into irreparable shards. It is a great example of how it takes strength and unity to create real change.

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.

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.

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.

Woman alleges workplace discrimination at Michigan company

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission recently filed a lawsuit against a Michigan manufacturer of milk and juice, alleging that the company engaged in workplace discrimination against female employees. According to the lawsuit, the company repeatedly failed to promote a female employee due to her gender. The woman's experience and time working at the company were significant, but she was continually left behind in favor of male employees when promotion opportunities arose. The EEOC is requesting an injunction to stop the company from repeating this behavior as well as financial compensation for this particular woman.
