• Can I Get Fired For Talking To An Attorney?

Michigan’s Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act is a state law protecting employees from discrimination in the workplace. An employer may not discriminate against an employee or potential employee because of age, race, sex, disability, marital status, nationality, height, weight, pregnancy, or childbirth. The Act also prohibits employers from retaliating against anyone complaining about such discrimination.

Employees have a right to seek counsel about their rights as victims or their obligations as witnesses. If an employer fires an employee after they talk to an attorney about an employment discrimination incident, it may be prohibited retaliation. If you have been discriminated against at work, have observed employment discrimination, or believe you’ve been fired for contacting an attorney, you may have grounds for a lawsuit. A Michigan employment discrimination lawyer can help you understand how to pursue legal action against your employer.
