  • Labor Laws in Michigan

    Federal, state and local governments regulate the terms and conditions of employment in order to keep employers from taking advantage of the workforce. Our labor and employment lawyers help employees level the playing field when employers in the Greater Detroit area refuse to abide by these labor laws, including: 

    • Minimum wage – Most non-tipped employees are entitled to receive a minimum hourly wage for work. The minimum wage in Michigan is currently $9.65, effective Jan. 1, 2020.
    • Overtime – In Michigan, most employees are entitled to overtime pay after working more than 40 hours a week. Under Michigan’s Improved Workforce Opportunity Wage Act, nonexempt employees should be paid “time and a half” of their regular rate of pay for hours worked over 40 in a seven-day workweek. 
    • Emergency leave – Employers in Michigan are subject to the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), which requires covered employers to provide up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave during any 12-month period for events such as the birth of a child, a personal illness or injury, or illness of a family member. 
    • Unpaid wages – Michigan’s Payment of Wages and Fringe Benefits Act requires most employers to pay an employee who is voluntarily leaving employment or discharged all wages earned and due, as soon as the amount can be determined. Wages can include salary, unused vacation and leave, commissions, bonuses, and other vested rights.
  • Workplace Discrimination Laws in Michigan

    Michigan law prohibits discrimination in employment. Michigan's Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act makes it illegal for an employer to discriminate against a job applicant or employee on the basis of religion, race, color, national origin, sex, age, weight, height, familial status, marital status or arrest record. Additionally, under Michigan’s Persons With Disabilities Civil Rights Act, it is illegal for an employer to discriminate on the basis of physical and mental disability.

    Despite these laws, discrimination and harassment can still happen.

    If you’ve experienced discrimination in the workplace, you may be entitled to compensation, including lost wages, reinstatement, and other forms of relief. At Morgan & Morgan, we will fight tirelessly for your full and fair compensation. Contact us today by completing our free case evaluation form.
