Understanding the Grounds of Wrongful Termination
When things go wrong at work, one of the first things employees fear is whether they will lose their jobs. In some situations, an employer is justified in firing an employee without warning. Tennessee is an “at will” state, meaning employees and employers work together at will, and either can terminate the relationship at any point for almost any reason.
However, there are some situations in which an employer cannot legally fire an employee. If the employee filed a harassment claim against the company, it is against the law for the employer to fire them in retaliation.
If you were fired and think it was an unfair response to a harassment or discrimination report, an experienced Knoxville wrongful termination attorney can help you receive the job protection and justice you need. That is precisely what Underwood Law Office, P.C., offers individuals throughout East Tennessee.
