WORKERS’ COMPENSATION

Employment Discrimination Attorney in Detroit

Employment Law book

Employers and individual managers can consciously or unconsciously discriminate based on race, gender, age, and several other protected statuses in a wide range of situations. Discrimination in hiring, promotion, and work assignments is illegal under various federal and Michigan state laws.

FACTS OF THE CASE

Unfortunately, employment discrimination is not rare, and it can be very difficult to prove in court. Generally, an employee must prove that an employer is treating two otherwise identical employees or groups of employees differently based on a protected status. While the employer doesn’t have to have made discriminatory statements for discrimination to be proven, it can be hard to win cases without some sort of statement from the employer that implies discrimination.

It’s also illegal for employers to retaliate or discriminate against employees who have filed Workers’ Compensation claims. Reassignment of employees who have filed for Workers’ Compensation should only be done for valid medical reasons. Transferring an employee to highly undesirable work when other, more suitable work is available may violate federal and Michigan laws.

For example, federal law only covers employers with more than 15 employees, while Michigan law covers employers with at least one employee.
