Study shows women in leadership positions are still harassed

Although both men and women in Michigan can be victims of sexual harassment, workplace harassment cases usually involve men mistreating female subordinates. However, a study from the Swedish Institute for Social Research found that women who are positions of power may be more likely to experience sexual harassment at work. The survey analyzed the experiences of worker in Sweden, Japan and the United States to obtain its results. It found that women in positions of power were 30 to 100% more likely to be harassed.

New proposal could significantly affect SSD program

It is no secret that the application process for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits in Michigan can be challenging. After filing an initial application, in which one has to provide a significant amount of information about medical and work history, the Social Security Disability claim will be reviewed by a claims examiner working for the state. Many people wait months to hear if their benefits have been approved, only to find that their initial claims have been denied, requiring them to go through a lengthy appeals process.
