Michigan Employee Rights Attorney
You work hard to take care of yourself and your family, putting in long hours and taking pride in the job you do. In exchange, you expect your employer to pay you fairly and according to the law. When you arrive in the morning, you deserve a safe workplace that complies with federal and state requirements.
If you or a loved one gets sick or welcome a new child to your family, the law gives you the right to take time off. And you should not have to tolerate discrimination or harassment that can take away your dignity or livelihood.
When employers fail to meet their legal or contractual obligations to workers, they need to be held accountable. But it can be difficult for affected employees to defend their rights if they do not know what they are or confront their employers and risk losing their job or reputation.

SEXUAL HARASSMENT RESOURCES
Regardless of gender, no employee should have to endure the indignity, embarrassment, or trauma of sexual harassment in their workplace.
Victims with the courage to report sexual misconduct to their employers should expect swift action to address the problem. But if the harassment continues and an employer fails to take the appropriate investigatory and disciplinary steps in response, the target of the harassment should feel empowered to stand up for their rights, job, and dignity.
