You should contact a Michigan employment attorney to discuss further, because these questions are highly dependent on the specific facts of your situation and the job duties you're required to perform. Your accommodation request may or may not be considered reasonable under the Americans with... Read more »

I was... Read more »

Best thing to do would be to call your local legal aid office and let them tell you whether it's something they would accept.
Generally, legal aid offices do not take "fee generating" cases. Think cases that lawyers would typically take on a contingency fee basis; yours is... Read more »
The rule on a royal Caribbean ship is that if you leave without fulfilling a two week notice you are not allowed to be rehired. I had put a two week notice in to go home to take care of some personal stuff. During that two weeks. Covid was spreading rapidly, I had a feeling that I was going to be... Read more »

What are you wanting to happen? If that is Royal Caribbean's policy, and they won't hire you back, there is nothing a court can do about that. You have no right to work for a particular company.

Have you talked to him about him getting his stuff out of your garage, and you get your cars out of his yard, and both of you just go your separate ways?

I don't believe there is anything suspect about this procedure, more information could tip the scales. The EEOC has published guidance on this and on mandatory vaccinations.
I would be curious to hear what an infectious disease physician would say. But from my perspective, on the... Read more »
The trucking company is out of Oklahoma. This person is physically able to perform all required job duties and have passed a DOT physical

This depends on the employer's reasoning for not hiring the individual. If, after passing all required tests, the employer still believes the employee isn't able to perform the job due to his or her weight, then the individual should reach out to a Michigan employment attorney to discuss...

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.

Yes. Your doctor may be able or willing to offer a contrary opinion. Then the issue becomes which doctor is right.
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 »
My hours have been cut since I don't respond to their advances. There is no HR Dept. I'm unsure what to do about it..besides job hunting. Who can help me?

You're in a tough spot. Is there a state-level office you could contact? You might want to start there.
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 »

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.
My life has definately been distorted by courts holding driving license, garnishing wages, jailing me.
answered on Sep 27, 2021
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.
The individual that harassed me continues to work there, and creates a hostile environment.

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 »

An employer is generally free to make hiring and firing decisions for any reason other than for protected status reasons (e.g. race and gender).

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 »

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 »

Yes, employers may ask if a prospective employee has been vaccinated.
