Hi. I have been working remotely for over 2 years and found it helps with some of my ada disabilities (asthma, adhd, and anxiety) which allows me to preform my job better. When they stated we will have to go back into the office; I identified these disabilities to my employer and make a verbal... Read more »
My employer is now denying sick leave to those employees who have worked for the company for many years and accumulated sick leave. Anyone over 240 hours moving forward are no longer receiving sick leave. Only employees who have 240 or less hours can receive sick leave. I would like to know if... Read more »
It is far to difficult to answer a question like this with precision. Your employer can *possibly* deny sick benefits to some and not others, but *probably* not in the manner you're describing (but it isn't obvious to me what is actually happening). But, the remedy for breach in this case...Read more »
When I was put on leave pending termination, an off duty campus police officer was waiting to drive me home. I didn't have a driver's license due to seizures. The VP who fired me said they set up a ride home due to my condition. I said I'd rather my wife, who worked a mile away,... Read more »
If your wife worked on campus, then I think the university had a right to escort you off campus and not to your wife's office. Whether you were falsely imprisoned is a bit more complex of an issue. I suppose you could have said you want to be dropped off across the street from university...Read more »
The State of Michigan in its COVID-19 Employment FAQ has said "Employees may be asked by employers to provide proof of a positive result or exposure. This may include documentation or making an effort to get tested for COVID-19. These are examples of reasonable...Read more »
So I work for A restaurant group that owns multiple stores but are all owned under one name. I recently worked at a store I normally don't work at to help out, and then finished out my week at my normal location. When I received my paycheck for that 1 week, I received a paycheck from the 1... Read more »
Interesting question that I think you would need to contact a labor attorney about. You may also want to reach out to the state's wage and labor board. I can see why you'd inquire. I think some of it comes down to how this restaurant group and corporate structure is actually arranged.
Interesting argument, but no. First, there is no constitutional right to a driver license. Second, your right to due process affects that and everything else. Importantly, you had notice, and likely opportunity to object and show why the action is wrong.
It’s good that there is hard evidence in the case, rather than a case of he said she said. The first step is to document with the HR department at your company. Hopefully your employer will take steps to ensure that this does not happen again. If they do not, you will have a compilation of...Read more »
I previously worked for them for 10 years as their general manager running the business and left on good terms. They contacted me a year later out of the blue and asked if I was interested in coming back for a specific position and I was the only person they were asking about the position. Made... Read more »
First, look at the terms of that bonus closely. It may say you need to work a certain period of time before receiving the money. Second, if they are unwilling to give you the bonus, you may need to take legal action, but I would think twice about going to court for $250 when you were fired for...Read more »
My daughter has had Covid, works in Mi and her and another not wanting shot at this time in their life. What are the rights protecting from being forced? Does this medical info (personal) fall under hippa being told by boss that it does not? Can I get fired for not having Covid shot? MI is at will... Read more »
You are correct that Michigan is an at-will state. Her employer can mandate that she get the COVID vaccination, unless she has a medical or religious reason for not wanting to do so. If either of those apply to her, you should contact an employment law attorney in your area to discuss her rights...Read more »
I was inside their home because they hired our company to treat for pests. All electronics are supposed to be unplugged. She had a video camera set up and eavesdropped on my conversation with an employee while she was somewhere else watching on her phone. She’s now sent it to my office and trying... Read more »
You have two issues: 1) you were in someone else's home, with no reasonable expectation of privacy; 2) this is an employment issue. Any one, right or wrong, can make a complaint. Good employers will assess the complaint and want to hear your side of things before taking action. It could be as...Read more »

You will likely need to wade through the unemployment appeal system where your fault can be established. Just keep in mind that warnings do not need to be in writing, and Michigan is generally an "at will" state. The remaining question seems to be whether you now qualify for unemployment benefits.
A supervisor at my old job is accusing me of committing a crime of vandalism on his vehicle, there is no evidence against me but I have messages of him calling me a criminal saying and also telling people it was me who committed the crime of a vandalism act to his vehicle , he even reported my name...

You probably could take him to court, but unless you have provable damages, I don't know what good it will do. Defamation and any civil claim is different and carries a different burden of proof than a criminal case.
My old job is trying to say I committed a vandalism act against a car in their parking lot, no evidence against me or no proof of me being there just going by hearsay and blaming me for it , can I sue ?
I pay partial rent and don't have a rental agreement and been living where I work ( maintenance man) for 8 years. They wrongfully fired me but then gave me my job back at the end of the week (I didn't ask for it back) now I have an eviction notice saying I'm squatting and have to... Read more »
Without a written lease, you have a month to month rental agreement (oral agreement). Therefore, they would have to give you 30 days notice. You should also note that in Michigan there are new measures in place with the district courts related to the residential eviction process that require more...Read more »
