If you’re looking for an employment lawyer in Knoxville, Nelson Law Group is here for you! Employment lawyers are experts on the federal and state employment laws and can offer great assistance if any of those laws have been violated. We know how stressful it can be to have your job on the line and you may not always know if a law has or has not been violated.

Below are three reasons why you may need to contact an employment lawyer:

Harassement or Discrimination

Workplace harassment is belittling or threatening behavior directed at an individual person or group of people in the workplace. It may include things like physical threats, offensive jokes, or discriminatory actions that interfere with another employee’s ability to do their job.

Illegal Termination

Illegal termination or wrongful dismissal is when an employee’s contract of employment has been terminated by the employer. What makes it wrong is if the termination is itself a breach of one or more terms of the employee-employer contract that was previously in place.

Forced to Sign a Rights Waiver

A rights waiver is a document that signifies the signer understands their rights and are agreeing to allow them to be waived or ignored by the employer. If an employer forces an employee to sign a rights waiver or threatens termination as result of not signing, that is illegal.
