Employer Rights

  • Support the right of employers of all sizes to manage their workplaces free of undue interference by local, state and federal governments.
  • Oppose efforts to increase the state’s minimum wage and/or expand Michigan’s paid sick leave law.
  • Support the right of employers to enforce drug-free (including marijuana-free) workplace policies for all employees without fear of being held liable for wrongful termination or charged for unemployment or workers’ compensation benefits.


For Michigan to be a leader in job creation and economic growth, our state’s employment laws must be fair, practical and affordable. Michigan job providers need the flexibility to operate their businesses – and attract and retain good and talented employees – without intrusive government mandates, regulations and restrictions.
