Tennessee Employment Lawyers

Being the target of harassment, discrimination, or retaliation at work can be shocking and dehumanizing. One of the best things you can do if you have questions regarding conflicts with your employer is to consult with an expert and experienced employment law trial attorney. Our skilled Tennessee employment attorneys handle a wide range of employment law matters, such as the following: 

  • Discrimination refers to situations where there is a claim of protected characteristics—such as race, gender, age, religion, disability, national origin, or sexual orientation—being discriminated against in the workplace. 
  • Sexual harassment and claims of a hostile work environment are examples of cases pertaining to workplace harassment.  
  • Cases involving unpaid wages, disputes over overtime, minimum wage violations, and employee misclassification fall under the category of wage and hour disputes. 
  • Family, Medical, and Administrative Leave: Problems with the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and administrative leaves; state-specific leave regulations; and making sure workers are properly compensated for their time off and are not targeted for reprisals. 
  • Employees who allege they were fired for illegal reasons—such as discrimination, retaliation, or breaking public policy—are said to have suffered from wrongful termination
  • cases involving claims that an employer retaliated against employees for exercising their legal rights as employees, including the ability to report harassment or discrimination, participate in investigations, and other rights. 
  • Protection for Johnson City Whistleblowers: Ensuring that workers who disclose unlawful or unethical activities occurring within their company are shielded from reprisals.

Wrongful Discharge

In spite of its name, “wrongful discharge” is not a legal claim. Wrongful discharge, on the other hand, means that your discharge was illegal since it violated federal or state law.  Your employer may be liable for your discharge, depending on the reason.

Sexual Harassment

In Tennessee and the federal government, workplace sexual harassment is illegal. It may be possible to recover compensation and other remedies for employees who have been sexually harassed at work.

Workplace Discrimination

Some Americans experience discrimination on a daily basis. No matter what a person does or who they are, their skin color, gender identity, sex, age, religion, or disability affect their chances of discrimination.

Workplace Retaliation

If you have been retaliated against or treated unfairly at your place of employment because you reported illegal activity or refused to engage in it, The law also prohibits retaliation against employees who report violations, regardless of whether the violation involved the employee reporting it or another employee.
