Tips for those who have been wrongfully terminated

If you've been wrongfully terminated in Michigan, your first reaction is probably going to be anger or frustration. You know it wasn't fair and you want to act quickly to either save your job or at least make sure your rights are upheld through a lawsuit. Don't act too quickly, though. First, read these tips, which can help you in the wake of the firing.

Legal guidance can smooth the rocky road of employment disputes

Employment disputes can come in many forms. From wrongful termination to issues of discrimination, these disputes can lead to unemployment, a hostile work environment or even attempts at retaliation. The most important thing you should understand as a Michigan employee is that you have rights in the eyes of the law. As such, if you are currently embroiled in an employment dispute, you should not be afraid to explore legal methods to remedy the situation.

What can I do if I'm paid less than male employees?

The struggle for equal pay for women in the workplace has raged on for several decades in the nation. While some headway has been made in ensuring equal rights for male and female workers, many men still earn more than their female counterparts.

Sexual harassment in a hostile work environment

Sometimes it can be challenging for people to determine which workplace behaviors are sexual harassment and which are merely distasteful actions or actions taken out of context. For example, politely asking a co-worker out to dinner or a date one time is typically not considered harassment. However, persistent requests for dates or intimate contact could definitely fall under the sexual harassment umbrella.
