Michigan alternatives to employment litigation

There are various types of laws meant to protect people from wrongdoing. Employment law is a growing legal field, wherein employees are protected in a sense from employer actions. Some of the topics that employment law covers have to do with age discrimination, fair labor standards and civil rights in the workplace, as well as Title VII issues, which prohibits discrimination at work based on sex, race and religion. Many of these issues can become quite complex and intricate and often take time to resolve. As a result, often times the employee is working throughout the process.

Contracts are pretty commonplace this day and age. People are free to make contracts amongst themselves as long as they are legal and the parties entering into the contractual relationship are doing so freely and of their own accord.

For instance, if a contract for services comes into being, then the party providing the services has to do so and the party paying for the services must pay once services have been rendered.

ERISA was intended to protect employees with respect to their benefit plans, specifically concerning the disclosure of financial information, standards of conduct, and allowing access to the courts where appropriate. It is important to note that ERISA does not provide insurance plans for employees; rather it regulates how the plans are handled. The employer provides the retirement package but ERISA oversees the process as a whole.
