Woman sues for wrongful termination, supervisor retaliation

A hostile work environment due to sexual harassment can create many problems for those who have to endure it. One may want to report the person who is responsible, but often retaliation can occur for those who stand up against these wrongs, in Michigan and across America. If one has a family to provide for, one may think that suffering from a hostile work environment is the best option so as to avoid wrongful termination. One woman had enough of her supervisor's sexual harassment, filed complaints, was fired and is now suing for wrongful termination.

Employment discrimination against Michigan's less attractive?

As we as human beings grow older, we like to think that we are wiser, more understanding and more mature than we were in our younger years. Children can be brutally honest as well as just plain mean. As we age, we like to separate ourselves from the way we acted formerly as children. Startlingly, a recent study in employment discrimination has found that perhaps Americans in Michigan as well as the rest of the country are not as mature as we would like to think.
