The Impact of Covid-19 on the Elderly

Estate Planning Attorney Ann Arbor


The laws of physics play out in our world; starting with the Newton’s Third Law of Motion, “…for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.” The Stay Safe, Stay Home Order was no exception. As we quarantined in our homes in 2020 to prevent overwhelming our hospitals with Covid-19 cases, a reaction occurred – elective medical appointments for the elderly were cancelled and many elderly people were isolated from their families.

The undiagnosed elderly with memory loss were at higher risk during the Covid-19 pandemic of engaging in unsafe activities. If you’re interested in learning more about Power of Attorneys, Guardianship and/or Conservatorships for loved ones with memory loss suffering through Covid-19 talk to an experienced estate planning attorney.

Are Employee Non-Compete Agreements Enforceable in Michigan?

Employment Law Attorneys Ann Arbor


Employers commonly condition the hire of a new employee on their willingness to agree in writing that after leaving the job, he or she will not engage in another job or a business that is competitive with the employer’s business. While such a commitment may appear to someone who is unemployed to be no big deal, that’s normally not the case. Being subject to such an agreement after one’s employment ends, is likely to create unexpected concerns for both employee and employer. In light of today’s tight job market, a terminated employee, with limited job skills and experience, may suddenly find himself with few, if any, employment opportunities. Because of a number of legal limitations on a former employer’s ability to enforce a non-compete agreement, employers attempting to do so may find themselves entrenched in costly and unpredictable litigation.

Michigan Governors Emergency Powers Are Limited

Business Attorney Ann Arbor


In a 4-3 decision issued on October 2, 2020, the Michigan Supreme Court limited Governor Whitmer’s authority to impose emergency regulations to deal with the COVID‑19 pandemic. 

It is important to note that whether one agrees or disagrees with the result reached by the Court, or with the specific reasoning with any of the justices’ separate opinions, the Court’s October 2nd decision doesn’t necessarily limit the ability of state agencies other than the Governor (for example, the Department of Health and Human Services) to issue regulations dealing with the COVID crisis.
