Employment Law

At Stempien Law, we represent people who have been wrongfully terminated from their employment. We represent individuals from every type of employment and from every industry.

Employees have protections under both federal law and Michigan law. We represent clients who have been the victims of discrimination, including discrimination based on age, gender, national origin, religion, disability, marital status and pregnancy. We also represent clients who have been victims of sexual harassment.

In addition, if you have suffered retaliation from your employer you may be entitled to compensation. This includes discharge, demotion, reduction in pay, harassment or mistreatment. This also includes whistleblowers - employees who either report potentially illegal acts by their employer or who refuse to engage in illegal behavior.

Stempien Law also has extensive experience litigating claims under the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA). Under the FMLA, qualified employees may take unpaid leave for illness, a family member's illness and pregnancy or adoption. We fight for employees who have denied FMLA leave, and employees who suffer retaliation for taking leave.

Stempien Law also protects its clients with regard to their rights under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Under the FLSA, employees must be paid for their time worked, including overtime for qualified employees.

If you have a contract in writing with your employer, or well-established rights within your employee handbook, you may be able to make a claim for a breach of that contract (or handbook) if you have been wrongfully terminated.
