Protecting the Rights of Employees in East Tennessee
If you have been harassed, suffered discrimination, or were wrongfully terminated from a job because of your race, sex, handicap, age, pregnancy or other condition unrelated to your job performance, The Terry Law Firm can provide excellent representation and forceful advocacy on your behalf.
Discrimination comes in all forms. While employees may know they have been treated unfairly or fired for improper reasons, without skilled legal representation they have limited options. Our Morristown employment attorneys have helped clients recover some of the largest legal settlements or courtroom verdicts in East Tennessee.
Some of the scenarios that can constitute a violation of Tennessee employment law include:
- Unpaid overtime
- Hostile work environment, including discriminatory or harassing behavior
- Sexual harassment
- Being passed over for promotion or demoted because of race, gender, disability or age
- Breach of the employment contract
- Retaliation, including firing or demotion for exposing corruption or filing an injury claim
- Invasion of privacy
- Being fired or demoted for taking unpaid medical leave or maternity leave
Effectively Investigating & Arguing Your Claim
It is important to remember that the law does not protect all instances of termination that may seem unfair. Employers may choose to fire workers for many reasons, and it can be difficult to prove that termination or discrimination was based upon the worker’s “protected status” or was motivated by retaliation. Only an experienced Morristown employment law attorney who understands how to effectively investigate and argue an employment law claim will succeed in recovering significant damages for a client.
