    Workers' Comp

    Injured at work? Act now. Timing is crucial. Learn the 4 critical steps to getting your workers compensation benefits. When injured at work, immediately report the injury in writing to the employer. Many workers comp laws require injured workers to file the state's version of "First Report of Work Injury or Illness" as soon as possible after a workplace injury. Read More: Workers Comp

    Overtime

    Attorneys can help clients receive the payment they are owed from their employment. Settlements often include pay that was illegally withheld or underpaid (back pay), liquidated damages (double the amount owed), punitive damages for extreme misconduct (such as time shaving or off-the-clock work without pay) and attorney’s fees.

    Family Medical Leave

    If you work for a major Tennessee employer (50+ employees), the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) ensures you up to 12 weeks of unpaid time off for the birth or adoption of a child or for a serious health condition. This same Tennessee maternity leave law prevents discrimination against women for being pregnant.

    Employment Retaliation

    Retaliation (also known as retaliatory discharge) is a form of workplace discrimination when an employer "gets back" by firing or disciplining an employee for being a law-abiding citizen. It is unlawful for a Tennessee employer to fire you for reporting illegal activity or for refusing to participate in these activities.

    Get Help with Family Medical Leave Problems

If you were promised maternity leave and then fired, we can help. If you work for a big employer and have been denied medical leave, we can help. If you took leave and went back to a terrible situation, we can help.
