Tennessee is an “at will” employment state, meaning that an employer can terminate your employment for any reason or no reason, but there are exceptions rooted in public policy to protect employees from such matters as discrimination based on age, race, gender, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, and violation of numerous other laws protecting your rights. Consult with experienced Cleveland, Tennessee employment lawyer Jack Tapper to determine your rights when faced with a wrongful discharge.
