Employment Law

Our law firm handles a variety of Employment Law issues from reviewing severance packages to wrongful termination cases. We represent employees, as well as employers and our clients vary from the blue collar workers to upper management and company executives providing us with a variety of insight many other firms do not have. We understand that every case is unique and each case needs to be handle differently whether that means being aggressive or attempting to maintain an already strained relationship with a former employer or employee. Some of the types of Employment Law issues we handle are listed below:

  • The Family Medical Leave Act
    The Family Medical Leave Act allows an employee to take up to 12 weeks of unpaid time off during a 12 month period of time for certain medical conditions of the employee or the employee's family, if the employee and his/her employer meets certain requirements. These medical conditions include the birth or adoption of a child; a serious health condition which renders the employee unable to perform functions of the job; or the care of an immediate family member who has a serious health condition. Generally in order to qualify for the Family Medical Leave Act an employee must work 1,250 in the past 12 months and work for an employer who has 50 employees within a 75 mile radius. The employee is also required to give notice to his/her employer of the situation requiring time off, though the employer does not need to mention the Act. The amount of advance notice varies by the situation, but the employee should give as much notice as is practicable and at least 30 days if the time off is foreseeable. If your employer has discriminated against you on the basis of a serious health condition or your use of the Family Medical Leave Act please contact Delekta & Delekta P.C. for a free case evaluation.
  • Wrongful Termination
    Michigan is what is called an at-will state, meaning that an employer can fire its employee for almost any reason unless they are in a union or you have a contract, however there are several exceptions to when you can be terminated. If you believe you were terminated for something that doesn't seem legal, give us a call and we can help you determine whether you have a legal claim against your former employer and whether it is worth pursuing.
  • Age/Sex Discrimination
    Discrimination on the basis of age or gender is prohibited in the workplace in Michigan by Elliot-Larsen Civil Rights Act and Federally by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. If you believe you have been discriminated against because of your age please contact Delekta & Delekta P.C. for a free case evaluation.
  • Sexual Harassment
    If you believe you are the subject of sexual harassment at the work place give Delekta & Delekta P.C. a call and we can help you enforce your legal rights.
    • Americans With Disabilities Act
    • Whistleblowers Protection Act
      Michigan law prohibits an employer from discriminating against an employee who has reported or is about to report a suspected violation of a state or federal law or regulation to a public body.
  • Review of Severance Package Agreements
    When signing a severance package agreement often the employee is asked to give up many of their legal rights including claims they may have against the company. We have experience reviewing severance agreements, advising you of what exactly you are giving up, and working with employers to attempt to negotiate a fair deal.
  • Drafting/Reviewing Non-Compete Agreements
    Michigan law is very complex when it comes to non-compete agreements. We have experience drafting, reviewing and litigating non-compete agreements.
