There are times when employees in Michigan may need to take time off from work when they have loved ones who fall ill or they themselves suffer a medical issue. When this occurs, employees in Michigan need to understand their rights to medical leave.
Ground Effects is a modest sized company that is a parts supplier for Ford Rouge production where UAW Local 600 represents the employees. Local 600 decided to organize this non-union shop of about 45 people under the new expedited procedures recently put into effect by the National Labor Relations Board. These expedited elections have been attacked by the anti-union lobby as "ambush" elections because they do not give the employer sufficient time to tell the employees its side of the story.
Michigan residents can be injured in countless ways. These injuries can occur unexpectedly and in a moment's notice. When a person seriously injured, the person may need to spend years trying to get back in the physical shape the person was prior to the injury. An injury can also change the shape of a person's future permanently. While rehabilitation can help individuals get back to their former selves, this can take it long time to happen.
When Michigan residents suffer a serious injury, a lengthy recovery and even temporary or permanent disabilities may be the result. Unfortunately, this often makes it difficult or impossible for the injured person to work, leading to lost wages and financial problems. Our law firm understands that this is a difficult predicament to be in. However, Social Security Disability benefits could help fill this major financial void.
