Adeptly Handling Workplace Discrimination Cases
Michigan and federal laws forbid various types of discrimination in the workplace. There is much confusion about the scope and application of these anti-discrimination laws, by both employers and employees.

Job Discrimination Prohibited by Michigan Law
In Michigan, workplace discrimination laws prohibit:
- Age discrimination
- Disability discrimination
- Gender and pregnancy discrimination
- Marital status discrimination
- Race, color and national origin discrimination
- Religious discrimination
- Weight/height discrimination
While Michigan does not presently have state law forbidding discrimination against sexual orientation, there may be local laws protecting against LGBT discrimination.
Employment discrimination cases can be quite complex, as federal and Michigan laws overlap on some, but not all, matters of on-the-job discrimination.
Michigan's Elliott Larsen Civil Rights Act and Persons with Disabilities Civil Rights Act are the primary job discrimination laws in play at the state level. On the federal side, employment discrimination cases often involve Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act.
