Stand Up For Your Rights After Facing Workplace Discrimination
Most employees are “at-will employees.” This means that employers have discretion in demoting or terminating employees, and do not have to have a reason. However, an employer cannot take any adverse action against an employee for an illegal reason. Illegal reasons include discrimination. State and federal laws prohibit discrimination on the basis of:
- National origin
- Marital status
- Pregnancy or illness
The First Step Is Speaking With An Experienced Attorney
If you believe you have been terminated, demoted or have experienced some kind of negative action at your job due to any of the above reasons, you need to speak with an experienced employment law lawyer.

Diligent Investigators And Powerful Litigators
Employers will never admit to discriminating against an employee. In most cases, employers will claim that an employee was fired for performance reasons rather than discrimination. They will hire a team of lawyers to defend their actions. It is critical that you hire your own team of experienced employment law lawyers who will diligently investigate your case and be powerful litigators on your behalf in the courtroom. We have represented clients in state and federal courts across Michigan, and are fully prepared to do so for you.
