I used to work for the City of Detroit, I had two emergency surgeries in May 2020, one to amputate my left foot and another surgery the next day to amputate my left leg below the knee due to contracting a flesh-eating bacteria that was progressing rapidly and was life threatening.
I was a temp in 2020 and I lost my job due to a COVID related hiring freeze. My Temp agency called wanting me to come in and see what other jobs were available. I told them I would be applying outside of a temp agency. I soon ended up on unemployment. Now In 2022 unemployment wants their money back... Read more »
I am in Michigan and was convicted of a felony in 1998. Great bodily harm less than murder. I know that it is up to the individual companies, but wondering if there is any law, state or federal , that would prevent me from working there.
normally i work thursday-sunday and get paid that monday. this past friday we found out (literally overheard the managers) that payroll was going to be messed up and we weren’t getting paid monday. my managers/HR/owner has not said ANYTHING about how or when we will be paid. other than “if you...

This will likely depend on the length of the delay in receiving the payment. Generally, employers can change their payroll schedule without notice (ex. changing pay date from Mondays to Fridays), but there may be payment deadlines imposed by Michigan state law that your employer cannot exceed.
For the 4 years I have worked at Menards Inc. I have not had any performance or attendance issues. I am a 1st assistant and this past Sunday I wrote up a fellow manager under me for poor job performance. He was irritated. The Saturday before we were playing around and he joked with me about...

Generally, absent a contract or a union agreement, employment in Michigan is "at will". There is limited protection against firing, but retaliation may be a legitimate issue to address. Your problem, though, may be that by your account,...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 »
A former employer of mine is threatening to sue me claiming I took work from the company and wants repayment for lost business to the company. I am trying to find out if they have any ground to stand on with that claim. I never "stole" work from the company, on 3 occasions after a... Read more »
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...Read more »
My son took a job and got an 11,000.00 relocation package. He used it. He is leaving at 10 months because he was afraid his job was being eliminated and had been offered a much higher paying job. They told him at his exit interview he owes the entire amount back and they are garnishing his entire... Read more »
Everything you write seems plausible. I don't think there is a way it has to be done. If the employment agreement was for him to receive $11,000 on condition that he stays at least a year, then I think the company has a right to demand at least some of it back. I suppose you could argue that...Read more »
Unlikely. From your question, it sounds like you were still in the interview stage. You offered - they didn't ask - a reason why you couldn't work the hours they wanted you to work. Their reason for not hiring you may be entirely due to your unavailability for the hours they need you,...Read more »
It's probably not entirely helpful to send you to read a statute, but there is a pretty helpful website from the State of Michigan that discusses the boundaries of the Youth Employment Standards Act (YESA). It doesn't appear as though a minor 16 years or older requires a parent's...Read more »
She told our Manager and asked her not to tell us because the employee said she’d tell us. When she told me over the phone, after working together for the whole week, it was 8 days notice. I feel since our employee handbook states 2 weeks required to get paid out PTO, I’m being just. She’s... Read more »
I recently found out that an employee who works in a health center (located within a high school) currently has a student living in their home. There is not blood relation to the student and no legal documentation indicating the employee has guardianship or can care for the student. The student is... Read more »
My first question is what does this have to do with you? If you are not the employee in question, or that person's employer, or this now adult, I'm not seeing a question. It's possible the employee has (had) a power of attorney signed by the student's parents. Of course now that...Read more »
Note that I'm not a Michigan lawyer, and I can't tell you about specific Michigan requirements, such as whether you need to buy workers' compensation insurance or pay into the unemployment compensation program if you have just one employee. (My guess is that the answer to both is...Read more »
