Depending on which source one consults, Michigan’s taxes on gasoline, and hence Michigan’s gasoline prices, are the fifth or sixth highest in the nation. This point was brought home after a trip to Toledo to visit two recently-retired Michiganian couples, who relocated to take advantage of lower costs of living. In Ohio gas was selling for $3.43 a gallon, just hours after I filled up with $3.87 petrol in Michigan. Only California, New York, Connecticut, and Hawaii (and sometimes Pennsylvania) assess more than Michigan in gasoline taxes. Despite some of the highest taxes in the nation (60.3¢ per gal.), Lansing is telling us we need to assess $120 million more in taxes per year for the next ten years to maintain our roads. That’s a 12.4% increase over our current $967M in state gas tax revenue – about 2¢ more per gallon.
How can we assess more tax per gallon than forty-five states and still have terrible roads?

Yes, this is another article about dealing with pregnancy in the workplace! I’ve previously set forth my recommendations on this topic in two prior articles – New Mom’s Back at Work (6/12/14) and The Mother’s Day Edition (5/8/14). Not to overkill the issue, but the EEOC just released new guidance on July 14, 2014, including an Enforcement Guidance, a Fact Sheet, and a related Q & A – all of which can be downloaded from the EEOC website (www.eeoc.gov).
In short, the new guidance does not differ from what I had previously outlined as employer obligations, and in fact re-emphasizes many points I made, including:
