Relief Provided By Tennessee Employment Law
When faced with an unscrupulous employer, many Tennesseans are confused about where to turn for help. This is understandable because many of them don’t know or understand that Tennessee employment law is very strong and effective.
Discovering your employer has been less than honest with you, abused your rights, or cheated you out of money or time creates a lot of stress. It can lead to everything from a poor home life to physical ailments, or even a hostile work environment.
Fortunately, you have options available to you through the Tennessee employment law.
Tennessee Employment Law is There to Help and Protect You
The first thing to understand is you don’t have to “put up with it.” Remember, if you have a problem at work that is important to you, then it should be equally important to your employer as well.
Both you and your employer have rights. You might have heard your employer can fire you at any time and for any reason, and not have to provide severance pay.
However, that doesn’t tell the whole story.
Your employer may not fire you in retaliation. For example, if you are in the military reserve, you can’t be fired for attending your mandatory drill meetings. You also can’t be fired for:
- Filing a worker’s compensation claim
- Speaking to union representation
- Reporting your employer for violation of any of the employment laws of Tennessee
