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 »
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 »
That is a tough answer to pin-point without a more exact question.
Michigan defaults to the FLSA, and the section 3(m) changes promulgated in the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2018 (CAA). This regulation was finalized fairly recently, while I can't know exactly what you're...Read more »
I signed up for direct deposit when I first started but it didn't work. Now I no longer have access to their online HR system so I cannot sign up for their paycard, either. They don't issue paper checks and don't accept paper forms or phone calls regarding payroll issues. What can I... Read more »
I reported harassment by a colleague last fall. Colleague received a scolding. We continue working in same building with little to no contact. Now my supervisor is requiring a sit down meeting with said colleague.
I would think about this pragmatically. If you refuse, will you lose your job? Maybe. Would that be lawful? Maybe not. It might depend on the type of harassment and degree. It might depend on your employer's role in the matter.
You'll need to call a few attorneys and discuss the...Read more »

I was asked by a former employer to create a website store for his small business. I worked on it, hours everyday for months and spent 500$ to perfect it, which I was told would be covered. After finishing the website I was suddenly let go from the business. I've been an employee of the... 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 »
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.
Can employer terminate now that I have almost worked 60 days since resignation without having to pay my wages for 60 days since they are severing contract before my last day of work provided in resignation?
