Employment Law - Major City

After a city spun off its Housing Department into a separate governmental entity, employee unions sued alleging that the reorganization violated employees' statutory rights as city employees.  The circuit court agreed with the unions’ arguments, and we appealed.  The Michigan Supreme Court reversed, holding that an amendment to the Michigan Housing Facilities Act had severed the relationship between the city and its Housing Commission, so that the City was not the employer of Housing Commission employees.
