Some women in Tennessee might be facing less sexual harassment in the workplace than in recent years, but they may be facing greater discrimination. These were the findings of a study conducted by University of Colorado researchers in the Leeds School of Business.

Workers in Tennessee may experience religious discrimination on the job regardless of what their faith is. In some cases, they may experience this even if they identify as atheist. According to a study from the Tanenbaum Center for Interreligious Understanding, 36% of respondents said that they were victims of religious intolerance or knew others who were. That translates to about 50 million Americans who have been disrespected at work because of their faith or lack of faith.

LGBT employees in Tennessee may be concerned about the outcome of three upcoming cases before the U.S. Supreme Court. At the same time, they may be heartened to receive the support of hundreds of major corporations in a friend-of-the-court brief filed in the cases. On Oct. 8, the high court is expected to hear oral arguments in the three cases stemming from decisions by federal appeals courts in New York, Cincinnati and Chicago. The courts in those cases ruled that gay, lesbian and transgender workers were protected against discrimination under existing federal civil rights laws prohibiting sex discrimination.

Two separate lawsuits have been filed against WeWork by two former company executives, alleging gender and age discrimination. Discriminatory actions by companies in Tennessee may give employees causes of action. A 62-year-old man who was once a WeWork vice president says the company discriminated against him because of his age just after he started to work there. He came on board with WeWork when the company acquired a portion of a construction company that he was then a part of.
Many LGBTQ workers in Tennessee might nod their heads in agreement when they learn about the findings of a survey conducted by Glassdoor, an online workplace review site. Out of the 6,104 adults who responded to the survey, 47% believed that revealing their sexual orientation or gender identity at work could damage their careers. These people worried about missing out on promotions, being sidelined from projects, or outright job termination.
