Facebook under investigation by HUD

Michigan residents may have heard that Facebook is being investigated for possibly violating fair housing laws. An investigation began after a ProPublica report issued in 2016 claimed that the company's advertising system allowed advertisers to target certain groups at the exclusion of others. The Fair Housing Act of 1968 forbids housing discrimination based on race or other protected attributes.

Terminating contracts for convenience

When executing contracts in Detroit, most would think that those party to them cannot simply walk away from these agreements for no reason. Yet depending on the type of company or agency involved (or the exact terms of a contract), the law may allow one to do just that. 

Why housing discrimination is stilll a problem

The Fair Housing Rights Act of 1968 made it easier for people of color to gain access to available homes and apartments. However, Michigan residents of color may find that they still struggle to be treated equally when it comes to finding housing. It is a remnant of ideas that began after slavery ended and the country came back together as one.

Understanding unfair business competition

As many business owners in Detroit and Chicago are well aware, the advantages to bringing a company idea into fruition can be endless. By the same token, owning a business can come with a long string of challenges and confusion. When a business owner suspects that a rivaling company has presented an unfair competition, there are many aspects to be aware of.
