There are certain facets of employment law in Michigan that employees and employers must be aware of to avoid an accusation of wrongful termination. It is not unusual for employers to dismiss an employee for no viable reason and do so as a form of retaliation. What many former employees are not aware of is that they may have the right to pursue compensation if they are able to prove that the dismissal was not due to a legal reason and was instead an unlawful retaliatory act. To understand whether a case falls into this category, it is important to get legal advice.
A former employee of a resort community has filed a lawsuit alleging that she lost her job because she reported several violations. Included were various forms of discrimination, the mismanagement of money donated to the community and emotional distress having been inflicted. The former executive director was the main focus of these allegations. He retired in October of 2015 after approximately five years on the job. The plaintiff, 71, claims that the incidents occurred while she was a part-time worker as the director of development between July of 2012 and November of 2014.
