An employee who believes that they are a victim of wrongful termination should contact an experienced employment attorney promptly. In some cases, an employee has only 90 days to file a lawsuit for wrongful termination.
In Michigan, an employee may have a successful wrongful termination lawsuit if the employee was discriminated against and terminated at least in part based on a protected status. Age discrimination, race discrimination, ethnic discrimination, gender discrimination, and weight discrimination are a few examples of illegal discrimination under Michigan law that can be the basis of a wrongful termination lawsuit.
It is also against the law for an employer to retaliate against an employee for opposing discrimination and/or harassment in the workplace, refusing to violate the law, or reporting a violation of law or suspected violation of law to a public body (Whistleblowing).
