Currently, Michigan has no statewide Ban the Box rules.

However, the city of Grand Rapids has its own rule. While Grand Rapids employers and landlords may consider a candidate’s criminal convictions and pending charges in making employment decisions, they may not consider arrests that did not result in convictions. If employers or landlords do consider criminal history in their decision- making process, they must do so on a “case-by-case” basis.

Currently, Michigan has no statewide Credit History Ban.

Currently, Michigan allows the use and possession of Marijuana by individuals for medical purposes by qualifying patients. Employers are specifically not required to permit or accommodate the use of Marijuana in the workplace. Persons age 21 and older may possess, use, consume, purchase, obtain, process, cultivate (with geographic restrictions), and transport marijuana for recreational use.

Currently, Michigan has no statewide Salary History Ban.
