This is a tough one. If all you did was request the MSDS sheets without refusing to work in a hazardous condition or threaten to call OSHA or MIOSHA yourself, chances are that unless you are union, there will be nothing you can do. Michigan is by default an 'at will' employer which means an employer can lay you off, fire you, cut your hours or pay, pretty much whatever, so long as they do not do so because of race, national origin, age, gender, etc. Another exception is if you refuse to violate the law (work in a hazardous condition) or if you report or are about to report a suspected violation of law.
Each employment situation has unique facts and circumstances. This means that information and advice cannot be taken literally and should be used as only informational. The information provided here is not legal advice and should not be interpreted as such.
I agree with my colleague, Ms. Rathe.
My discussion with you regarding the question you posted on Avvo does not create an attorney-client relationship, nor is my response to your question to be considered legal advice. While I do my best to provide helpful responses given the factual scenario presented, proper analysis of any matter requires a more in-depth conversation than what is practical on Avvo. If you are a member of the military, or if an immediate family member of yours lost his or her life while fighting for our country, I am proud to offer a 10% discount on my fee.
