Attorneys Fighting Discrimination In The Workplace

Most people in our country today have a good sense for what workplace discrimination is. However, most people don't know the nuances of employment law and lack the experience to handle a legal discrimination claim themselves. If you have been a victim of discrimination in the workplace, make sure you work with a law firm you can trust, a team of lawyers who will help you protect your right to fair treatment in the workplace.

At McCune Zenner Happell, PLLC, in Brentwood, Tennessee, we believe that everyone deserves a workplace free from mistreatment and discrimination. Serving clients in Brentwood and all of Williamson County, as well as the Nashville area and Middle Tennessee, our lawyers take a serious, dedicated approach to fighting all forms of employment discrimination and other areas of employee rights violations.

How Do You Know If It's Employee Discrimination?

Attorneys from our firm defend clients in a range of discrimination claims. Although the laws are wide-ranging in terms of what constitutes workplace discrimination, not every mistreatment from an employer rises to this level.

The law prohibits employers from discriminating against employees based solely on the employee's membership in a "protected class." Examples can include:

  • Workplace discrimination
  • Gender discrimination
  • Age discrimination
  • Disability discrimination
  • Race discrimination

If an employer has terminated your employment, passed you over for a promotion or raise you deserved, or mistreated you in other ways at work, solely because of your membership in one of these classifications, you could have a discrimination claim.

Filing Your Claim

While federal claims require people to go through the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) when filing a claim, Tennessee does not have this requirement, which is a great benefit. Avoiding this EEOC administrative requirement saves significant time in the process.
