A: In Michigan, your employer generally cannot unilaterally cut your pay rate for not giving a two-week notice, especially for hours you've already worked. Pay rates are typically determined when you're hired or through negotiations, and reductions usually require prior written agreement. Check your employment agreement for specific terms. Michigan labor laws regulate wage deductions, ensuring pay remains above minimum wage.
