No Fee Unless You Win — We Do Not Get Paid Unless YOU Get PaidWe have helped clients throughout Tennessee assert their rights and pursue monetary compensation or other relief for:

  • Workplace discrimination: differential treatment in duties, promotion, discipline, compensation or termination

Attorneys Experienced At Fighting Employment Discrimination

In Tennessee as in most states, your employment is at will. Employers are under no obligation to hire the best-qualified person, and they can end your employment for poor performance or for no reason at all…

…UNLESS the employer’s reason for not hiring you, for firing you or for treating you badly is a violation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Tennessee Human Rights Act, or other federal or state protections. You may have a claim if you were the victim of discrimination based on:

  • Your race, religion, national origin or gender
  • Your age or disability (including failure to accommodate a disability)
  • Family medical leave (pregnancy or caring for a sick family member)
  • “Whistleblowing” on unlawful activities, such as OSHA violations or false claims against a government agency
  • Retaliation for filing a workers’ compensation claim

In your free initial consultation, our employment discrimination attorneys will discuss the merits of your case, possible remedies and your legal options. You may sue for reinstatement or promotion, or you may seek monetary compensation including back pay, front pay and benefits; embarrassment and humiliation; emotional distress or defamation; and in certain cases, punitive damages.

Note: Even if you quit your job because the mistreatment was unbearable, you may be able to seek the same remedies under a claim of constructive discharge.

If you experienced employment discrimination or believe you were fired as a whistleblower, contact our Murfreesboro office today.
