  • corp vs private Michigan

    I work in Michigan, and have browsed the labor laws concerning Michigan. But the company I work for is based in Illinois. Which state's labor laws apply? From what I have been reading, Michigan labor laws heavily favor the employer. There are no labor laws concerning breaks or lunches in the state of michigan. I find this hard to believe. An employer doesn't even have to give breaks or lunches no matter how long an employee works. A michigan employer can even change a schedule at a moments notice and hold the employee liable to work it, or the employee can be fired legally.

    If you are in Michigan, Michigan's laws apply to you.

    There are many states that do not require lunches or breaks, and there are several states which have laws on the subject much more favorable than Illinois. In EVERY state, including Illinois, an employer can change the schedule at a moment's notice and require the employer to work it on threat of firing.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
