Did you know that Michigan got its name from the Native American word Michigana, which means “great or large lake”? This stands to reason, because it borders on 4 of the 5 Great Lakes! But I digress…

What you really need to know is that the Michigan Department of Civil Rights (MDCR) has issued an updated Discrimination poster with a new revision date of 2/2017.

While the discrimination prohibition categories have not changed, the poster now provides important information for the disabled.

Employment Accommodations

The first change is related to employment accommodations. New language states that people with disabilities who need accommodations for employment must notify their employers in writing within 182 days.

New Video Phone Number

In addition, the MDCR’s contact information has been updated to include a video phone number for people who are deaf, hard-of hearing, or speech-impaired.
