Our law firm handles a variety of Employment Law issues, from reviewing severance packages to wrongful termination cases.
We represent employees and employers, and our clients vary from blue collar workers to upper management and company executives. Our varied experience provides us with a variety of insight many other firms do not have. We understand that every case is unique, and we know each case needs to be handled 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 allows an employee to take up to 12 weeks of unpaid time off during a 12-month period of time for certain medical conditions. An employee can take this 12 weeks of unpaid time off if the employee or the employee’s family member has certain medical conditions and, if the employee and his/her employer meet 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 have worked 1,250 hours in the past 12 months and must 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 employee 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.
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 unless the employee has a contract. However, there are several exceptions to when an employee can be rightfully 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.
Discrimination on the basis of age or gender is prohibited in the workplace in Michigan by the 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 or gender, please contact Delekta & Delekta P.C. for a free case evaluation.
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.
The Americans with Disabilities Act protects employees with disabilities. The ADA requires employers meet certain requirements to provide reasonable accommodations for employees with disabilities.
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.
If you believe you have been terminated because you reported or were about to report such a violation, give Delekta & Delekta P.C. a call, and we can help you enforce your legal rights.
Federal and State Laws requires employers to pay minimum wage and overtime to their non-exempt employees. Both the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act and Michigan Workforce Opportunity Wage Act are very complex with many exceptions.
We can help you navigate these laws to determine if you are being properly compensated, and, if you aren’t, we can assist you in getting the compensation you are entitled to. Our office handles both individual cases and class action cases.
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.
Michigan law is very complex when it comes to non-compete agreements. We have experience drafting, reviewing and litigating non-compete agreements.
