An introduction to Michigan's whistleblowers' protection act

A recently-filed lawsuit in Detroit by a former employee of Volkswagen is calling attention to Michigan's whistleblower's protection act. Enacted in 1980, the statute is an important part of the state's employment law. It is intended to protect workers who report violations of state or federal law by their employers. The law provides an important safeguard against an employer's attempts to retaliate against such an employee by firing or demoting them in retaliation for reporting the legal violations.

What information is necessary for an SSDI appeal?

In Michigan, many individuals are unable to work due to an illness or injury. These individuals need to rely on Social Security Disability benefits. These benefits allow individuals to receive monthly income to pay for basic necessities. Without this income, many individuals are unable to pay for the things they need. However, these benefits are not automatic. In fact, individuals must go through a rigorous application process in order to apply for and receive SSD benefits. In many situations, individuals are initially denied SSD benefits from the Social Security Administration. The SSA has a vested interest in ensuring that resources are protected.
