Racism continues to be an employment law concern in 2018

The year is 2018 and sadly racism is alive and well in Tennessee. While employees occasionally suffer discrimination from their employers, they may also experience it coming from customers. Employment law protects employees from workplace discrimination.

Employment law does not allow age discrimination

A person in Tennessee who has been performing a job successfully should not have to stop performing that job just because of his or her age. Age discrimination is illegal in the United States, and so is a violation of employment law. Age discrimination is also a violation of the Tennessee Human Rights Act.

Age discrimination is a violation of employment law

Equal opportunity employment should mean just what it sounds like in Tennessee. If a person is qualified and physically able to do a job, the individual should have the opportunity to demonstrate that he or she can do the job. However, in a case recently brought against a fast food chain, it appears that age may be being used as a disqualifier, which is in violation of employment law.

Incidents like this one often lead to wrongful death litigation

Tennessee highways are dangerous places. A person can be riding along as a passenger and suddenly wind up in a life-threatening situation, especially if there's a reckless driver nearby. Sometimes, the reckless driver might be in the very same vehicle. Sadly, that was the case in a recent tragedy that occurred in a similar way to wrongful death situations that have happened in the past.
