Workers with disabilities face workplace discriminaton, too

Prior to the Americans with Disabilities Act, having a disability was challenging in the United States, including in Michigan. After all, public buildings were not accessible to those with disabilities, for example. Even though this has since been addressed, several hurdles still remain for those with disabilities -- specifically in the workplace.

Compensation-related workplace discrimination

Finding a job that one really likes can be a bit of a challenge. When one does and he or she puts everything into it, it can be difficult to learn that one's efforts are not being fairly compensated. Unfortunately, compensation-related workplace discrimination is a problem in Michigan and elsewhere.

Employment disputes over arbitration agreements

Finding the right job can be a challenging thing to accomplish. When one finally does, signing an employment contract without reading it may result in one giving up his or her rights to pursue legal options in order to resolve employment disputes. How is this possible and what can Michigan residents do about it?

When can a wrongful termination lawsuit be filed?

Those in Michigan who have been let go from their places of employment have every right to question whether their employers were justified in firing them. In many cases the answer will be yes, they were, but there are other cases when the answer will be no. Employers have the right to make decisions for their companies, but firing for certain reasons could result in them facing wrongful termination lawsuits.
