Who Qualifies for Social Security Disability?
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is a program administered by the Social Security Administration that provides monetary assistance for those who qualify as disabled under the administration’s rules & regs.
Are you Covered?
Most Michigan employers are required to carry workman’s comp insurance. However, certain exceptions do exist. For example, most federal employees are covered instead by the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act.
Independent Medical Examinations
Under Michigan workers’ compensation law, the employer of an injured worker must allow the worker to seek independent medical care after a certain period of time after the initial injury. The employer may require the injured worker to go to a specific doctor — sometimes called the “company doctor” — in the very beginning stages of the claim process.
Wrongful Discharge & Sexual Harassment
While Michigan prohibits decisions/acts based on race, color, sex, age, religion, national origin, height, weight, martial status, Federal remedied also exists against claims of discrimination based on age and disability. Depending on your circumstances and the relief sought, these remedies may include: reinstatement, back pay, injunctive relief, future lost pay, mental distress damages.
