Michigan Discrimination Attorneys

You do not have to tolerate discrimination of any kind, whether it’s based on your age, race, sex, religion, or protected disability. It is against the law for an employer, labor union or employment agency to discriminate against anyone because of these things.  Our Michigan discrimination attorneys are here to help you with your discrimination case. Discrimination is not only the refusal to hire you or fire you, it also includes any unjust changes to your:
  • Compensation
  • Employment terms and conditions
  • Privileges
  • Employee benefits
In Michigan, employment discrimination claims can be prosecuted under federal statutes or the state’s own anti-discrimination statute-the Elliott Larsen Civil Rights Act. Discrimination takes place if you are purposely treated differently due to: Difficult to recognize While the definition of employment discrimination seems easy enough to comprehend, recognizing it is not always as simple. Rarely will your employer provide direct evidence-for example stating that he or she is replacing you with a younger employee without a family who is able to work long hours. Most cases are based on circumstantial evidence, and must be shown that you were treated unfairly because your colleague was younger or of a different race or gender. Shifting the blame Even if you do have enough evidence to prove discrimination, your employer may be able to justify his or her action by proving that their “unfair” treatment was based on another factor. Maybe your employer will argue that you did not meet a specific job qualification or that you were fired because of company downsizing. A contributing factor is good enough However, your age, race or sex alone doesn’t have to be the sole reason for making an action-like firing you-illegal. These things must simply be factors that make a difference in your employer’s decision whether to hire or fire you. Michigan is also one of only several states whose anti-discrimination statute applies to discrimination on the basis of height and weight.
