- Overtime Exempt? Not So Fast
Overtime pay is a right for most Tennessee employees. Tennessee employers must pay time and a half for overtime eligible employees. Federal and Tennessee overtime laws are based on the workweek, not the number of hours worked a day. Overtime questions?
- Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
FMLA means you can take time off to care for those you love. Covered Tennessee employees have a right to 12 work weeks a year of medical leave. When you need medical leave, you should not have to worry about losing your job. Did you get fired after asking about your FMLA rights?
- Workers' Comp Advice
When injured at work, immediately report the injury in writing to the employer. Unless you have a Tennessee workers compensation attorney who knows Tennessee law, you may miss important deadlines or you may lose your right to bring a comp claim.
- Employment Retaliation Hurts Workers
Retaliation happens when an employer “gets back” by firing or otherwise disciplining an employee for making a claim or reporting a wrong. Retaliation in Tennessee employment violates various federal laws, the Tennessee Human Rights Act and Tennessee's whistleblower statute.
