What are your rights under federal law?

The law protects all employees who report an act of wrongdoing or discrimination within a company. It does not matter if the act was done to them or another person, he or she will always be protected. For instance, Title VI and VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 declares that employees are protected from discrimination based on their race, color, national origin, gender, and more. For example, if you believe that you were discriminated against because of your race and you decide to pursue legal action and report the act of discrimination, you will have the legal right not to be retaliated against by your employer. It is unfortunate that in some cases, employers do not always understand or see this legal right, and will choose to retaliate against their employees anyway. Our firm has seen several ways that employers have retaliated against their employees. However, the most common types of retaliation in the workplace that our legal team has observed include the following:

  • Demoting an employee
  • Harassing an employee and creating a hostile work environment
  • Decreasing an employee’s pay
  • Firing or laying off an employee

It is critical that you consider retaining the services of a dedicated and experienced Tennessee worker retaliation attorney if you believe you were unfairly and unlawfully retaliated against. Our legal team has the skill required to collect and present sufficient evidence to prove that an act of discrimination occurred and that your employer unlawfully retaliated against you as a result.

When should I retain the services of an attorney?

Retaliation cases are often complex, and if you bring a claim against your employer, you can bet that he or she will have hired aggressive legal representation to defend them and disprove your claim–this is why you must do the same. Get a seasoned and equally aggressive Knoxville employment attorney on your side as soon as possible.
