What is a medical vocational allowance?

Many persons in Michigan who apply for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits learn that their medical condition does not satisfy the definition of any disabling condition that is set out in the SSA manual, commonly called the Blue Book, and their claim has been denied. One obvious solution is to appeal the denial. Appeals can, however, take time, and the outcome is not always predictable. Another option is to seek a medical vocational allowance at the same time that the application for Social Security Disability benefits is filed. In this post, we will outline the basics of this path to obtaining disability benefits.

Court reinstates discrimination claim by hospital technician

Sex discrimination claims can often be very difficult to prove. Sometimes, these difficulties can cause trial courts to dismiss cases that deserve to be decided by a jury. In a case that arose out of an incident at VHS Detroit Receiving Hospital, the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit decided that the trial court erred in granting summary judgment in favor of the defendant and that, as a matter of employment law, the plaintiff was entitled to a jury trial.
