Retaliation: Michigan

Retaliation requirements for other states

Federal law and guidance on this subject should be reviewed together with this section.

Authors: Evan Burkholder and Lesley Yulkowski


  • Michigan's employment retaliation laws are generally coextensive with their federal counterpart, and therefore look to federal courts for guidance. However, Michigan Courts do place additional requirements on a complainant. See Retaliation Under Michigan's Elliot-Larsen Civil Rights Act.
  • Localities including Ann Arbor and Detroit have requirements pertaining to retaliation. See Local Requirements.
