Right-To-Work: What Does the Effective Date Mean to Your Workplace?


Detroit and Grand Rapids

As we alerted you in December, effective today, all agreements, contracts, understandings or practices that take effect, are extended or renewed are subject to Michigan’s Right-To-Work laws, Public Acts 348 (private sector) and 349 (public sector). Thus, if your organization is presently a party to an existing agreement, contract, understanding or practice, Right-To-Work laws will not impact you unless or until the current agreement, contract, understanding or practice is extended or renewed.

The State of Michigan has released posters containing information regarding the new right to work laws.  The poster for public employers can be found here. The poster for private sector employers can be found here.

The following describes the key changes.

DISCLAIMER: Because of the generality of this update, the information provided herein may not be applicable in all situations and should not be acted upon without specific legal advice based on particular situations.
