My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: Michigan
My wife's doctor said she cannot attend her grievance hearing because the stress could result in serious illness or heart attack. Therefore, she gave me her POA so I could attend and represent her interests along with her union representative. Twice, in writing, and now once verbally, her employer has stated they will not allow me to attend or to represent her. Can they do that? What recourse do we have? I thought ignoring a POA could result in suing for damages, yet the employer's attorney allegedly told them they could exclude me. What's up?
