Mary Mahoney plays key role in employment case involving marijuana

The Michigan Court of Appeals recently interpreted state laws to determine whether an employee who possesses a medical marijuana card and is discharged after failing a drug test may be denied unemployment benefits.

Quicken verdict on Fair Labor Standards Act Survives Appeal

A federal jury in Derroit disagreed with the 450 plaintiffs who claimed Quicken Loans owed between $4 million and $30 million to them in unpaid overtime. The jury found that the plaintiffs were administrative employees, not "glorified salesmen" with limited decision-making authority as plaintiffs claimed. The jury's finding meant the plaintiffs were exempt from the overtime standards of the Fair Labor Standards Act and as such, Quicken did not owe the "back pay." The plaintiffs fared no better before the 6th U.s. Circuit Court of Appeals, which affirmed the jury's verdict. It was a significant win for employers.
