Employment | Practice Areas
Most employment relationships in Michigan are "at will", which means either the employer or employee may terminate the relationship at any time, for any reason. However, in some situations, such as if the termination was a violation of public policy, discriminatory, a breach of an employment contract, or a violation of the employers expressed policies, a wrongful termination claim may exist. Grua, Tupper & Young, has attorneys experienced in litigating wrongful termination issues.
Michigan and Federal law both address discrimination based upon race, sex, age, and other matters. The law also addresses the rights and responsibilities of employees and employers with respect to the employment relationship. Often times, but not always, litigated cases involve both employment contract and discrimination concepts at the same time.
