The latest Employment Law Handbook
– A Virtual Guide for Michigan Employers is now available!

One of the challenges facing today’s employers is keeping up with the legal changes that affect the workplace, especially during an evolving global health pandemic and transitional times. That’s where this latest handbook can help.  Listen to a brief message from Amanda Toy, Sr Director of Corporate Partnerships, on what to expect from this year’s Employment Law Handbook. 

The 2022 handbook is brimming with all the key and latest employment law information, including evolving workplace rules like COVID-19 accommodation requests, remote work guidelines and considerations given the state’s updated marijuana law and regulations, as well as sample forms and policies.

Compiled by trusted partners. The employment law experts at Miller Canfield scoured the state and federal information and changes that you need to know and the Michigan Chamber helped compile it in one complete, easy-to-use resource.
