Attorneys Fighting Discrimination In The Workplace

Most people in our country today have a good sense of what workplace discrimination is. However, most people don’t know the nuances of employment law and lack the experience to handle a legal discrimination claim themselves. If you have been a victim of discrimination in the workplace, make sure you work with a law firm you can trust and a team of lawyers who will help you protect your right to fair treatment in the workplace.

At Zenner Law, PLLC, in Brentwood, Tennessee, we believe that everyone deserves a workplace free from mistreatment and discrimination. Serving clients in Brentwood and all of Williamson County, as well as the Nashville area and Middle Tennessee, our lawyers take a serious, dedicated approach to fighting all forms of employment discrimination and other areas of employee rights violations.

How Do You Know If It’s Employee Discrimination?

Attorneys from our firm represent clients in a range of discrimination claims. Although the laws are wide-ranging in terms of what constitutes workplace discrimination, not every mistreatment from an employer rises to this level.

The law prohibits employers from discriminating against employees based on the employee’s membership in a protected class. Examples can include:

  • Sexual harassment
  • Gender discrimination
  • Age discrimination
  • Disability discrimination
  • Race discrimination
  • Religious discrimination

If an employer has terminated your employment, passed you over for a promotion or raise you deserved, or mistreated you in other ways at work solely because of your membership in one of these classifications, you could have a discrimination claim.

File Your Claim In Confidence

While federal claims require people to go through the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) when filing a claim, Tennessee does not have this requirement, which is a great benefit. Avoiding this EEOC administrative requirement saves significant time in the process. We can help you properly file your claim to seek justice swiftly and efficiently.

The goal of discrimination cases is to send a message to any current or potential discriminator that their behavior is no longer tolerated.
