Wrongfully terminated? The law is on your side

Many people have been fired from their place of employment at least once in their lives. What surprises many is how emotional the experience can be, not to mention how difficult it is on lifestyles and loved ones. Along with feeling afraid about how they will support their family members, Michigan residents who have been fired often feel a sense of loss. This is particularly true when the termination came out of nowhere and occurred due to no fault of the worker.

What rights do I have as a Michigan worker?

Workers in the United States enjoy a wide variety of rights in the workplace. These rights are covered under the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Act, or MIOSHA. The Act outlines employee rights as well as the responsibilities of employers in the state. For example, employers are required to provide their workers with an environment free of hazards and safety risks.

Proving workplace discrimination in Michigan

For many Michigan employees, workplace discrimination remains a somewhat murky area of employment law. Often, those who have been the victim of such discrimination are not sure whether or not they have actually suffered wrongdoing. In many cases, the very fact that a worker suspects discrimination indicates that something is wrong. Rather than waiting and worrying over possible discrimination, workers in our state can seek advice early on. One of the most informed resources for advice is an employment attorney serving Michigan residents.
