Tennessee and Federal law, it is unlawful for an employer
to fail or refuse to hire or discharge any person or otherwise
to discriminate against any person with respect to compensation,
terms, conditions, or privileges of employment because of
such person's race, color, religion, sex, age, or national
origin. The Age Discrimination in Employment Act prohibits
age discrimination against an employee forty (40) years and
over. In addition, it is unlawful for an employer to retaliate
against an employee for making a complaint of sexual harassment
or discrimination. There are also laws to protect women from
discrimination due to pregnancy. If you feel you have been
discriminated against in the workplace, you may need to consult
with an attorney. In addition, you may file a complaint with
the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in Nashville by
contacting them at (800) 669-4000.
