U.S. Army pays on sexual harassment claim

When people go to work, they expect that they will be treated with a certain amount of respect. While employers have great leeway in how they can treat employees, there are basic rights that all employees enjoy. One of these rights is the freedom from sexual harassment in the workplace. Employers cannot tolerate or participate in the sexual harassment of employees. If employers allow employees to suffer from sexual harassment in the workplace, these employers can be held liable under employment laws.

New NLRB Rules Regarding Elections

The new NLRB administrative rules regarding how elections are conducted appear to have dramatically decreased the time it takes to conduct an election and appear to have substantially increased the likelihood of a result favoring organized labor. A recent analysis showed that "the NLRB fit 31 more resolved elections into the four-month period following the rule change than it did into the same period a year earlier. What's more, every one of those 31 additional elections was a victory for the union." As noted by the study, after the implementation of the new rules in April 2015, the median amount of time it took to reach an election decreased by two weeks.

SSDI and childhood disabilities

It is an unfortunate reality that many children in Michigan are born with serious disabilities. Many may be unable to support themselves as they reach adulthood. Instead, these individuals -- despite being adults -- are dependent on others for their care and financial support. This can be emotionally overwhelming for Michigan parents. They may not have the financial resources to meet their children's needs as they age.
