Thank you for visiting our website.

The Michigan Employment Lawyers Association (MELA) is an organization of attorneys who represent employees, not companies. Our singular goal is to protect employee rights in the workplace by improving advocacy, monitoring developments in the law and supporting our fellow MELA members in their own practices. Thank you for visiting our website and we look forward to your involvement in our organization to promote justice in the workplace.

If the majority of your practice is devoted to litigating employment matters on behalf of employees, think about filling out an application and joining MELA. We’d love to work with you.
