Miller Canfield and Michigan Chamber of Commerce Team Up to Release 2015 Employment Law Handbook

February 5, 2015

Miller Canfield’s nationally ranked Employment and Labor Group has again teamed with the Michigan Chamber of Commerce to publish the “2015 Employment Law Handbook,” an annual update of employment laws for employers of all sizes.

“A quarterback carries his playbook and a lobbyist his checkbook. Without this reference, any human resource professional will be equally unprepared if he or she does not keep it close at hand,” said deputy Employment and Labor Group leader Christopher Trebilcock. “Short of having your employment and labor attorney permanently at your side, there is no better source to rely on when making tough employment and labor decisions.”

Each year, Miller Canfield lawyers write and update the handbook, which the Chamber sells through its website in both print and electronic editions. This year’s edition costs $149 for Chamber members and $199 for non-members. Shipping and handling charges are added for those that order the print edition only.

This year’s edition features 440 pages of in-depth analysis of Michigan and federal employment laws over 20 chapters, including recent hot-button topics such as:

• Employer response to union organizing

• The Internet Privacy Protection Act

• Pregnancy accommodations

• Compensable time and minimum wage

• Effect of the Defense of Marriage Act on the Family and Medical Leave Act

• MIOSHA’s citation and appeals processes

• Social media guidelines

• The Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act

• Medical Marijuana and unemployment compensation

“The Employment Law Handbook helps HR professionals, in-house counsel, and business owners recognize issues and seek the guidance they need before problems arise,” said Trebilcock.

The Handbook can be ordered directly from the Chamber website at
