Asian Americans are victims of discrimination at Harvard and other Ivy Colleges

This is a very interesting piece, No, Affirmative Action Has Not Made Asian-Americans the 'New Jews', by an academic expert, Jerome Karabel, arguing that Ivy League colleges are not unlawfully discriminating against Asian Americans as alleged in a currently pending lawsuit in Boston. I disagree with it, but it is worth reading.

Are you an at-will employee? Why does the distinction matter?

In an at-will employment relationship, you can be fired at any time for almost any reason (with several exceptions we discuss in this post). On the other hand, you can also quit when you want without having to give notice in most situations.

Both Michigan and Ohio are at-will employment states. That means in the absence of a specific employment contract that you signed prior to starting or on the first day of your employment, you are probably an at-will employee.

Nassar Survivors Still Have Time for Claims Against MSU!

Michigan State University has agreed to open a $75 Million Settlement Fund for remaining victims of Larry Nassar - but time is of the essence! Survivors who have not yet filed a lawsuit have a deadline of September 10, 2018, to claim compensation from MSU. Michigan State University is being held liable for allowing Nassar's sexual abuse to have continued since 1997, when they first had notice of his conduct. The Michigan Legislature has specially extended the statute of limitations to aid survivors, but they must act fast. Suits must be filed before September 10, 2018 or be forever lost.

Can my employer fire me for using medical marijuana?

Marijuana, medical and otherwise, is causing a pattern of indecision among employers. Historically, most employers require a drug test before hiring candidates. Some also do spot tests during employment or following a safety incident. But as the number of medical marijuana card carriers increases, Michigan employers face whether to remain zero-tolerance or create progressive rules for drug policies.

The Michigan Medical Marijuana Act “does not place any limits or restrictions on workplace drug testing, regardless of whether an employee may lawfully use medical marijuana.” Termination could unfortunately be in your future if you fail a drug test. Even if you carry a marijuana card, you may have violated your employer’s drug policy.
