Discrimination & Harassment
Discrimination and harassment are very specific accusations. In order to be a victim of discrimination or harassment, the employee must be a member of a protected class.
For the most part, the protected classes are organized so as to protect groups of people that traditionally have been marginalized in the workplace.
The Sykes Law Office defends your interests in mediation or in court when you have a problem with discrimination or harassment in Tennessee.
Wrongful termination offers only very narrow protection—most employment in Tennessee is at will, which means the employer or the employee may sever the relationship at any point in time for any reason either chooses.
At-will employment still includes certain rights, though. The Sykes Law Office works with clients who need to define and take action to protect against claims or attempts of wrongful termination.
Ernest Sykes, Jr., also works in a consultative capacity with professional organizations and corporations who may need advice to prevent these types of claims.
Non-Competition & Enforceability
Employment law also covers the relationships between business entities.
The Sykes Law Office works with corporate and individual clients who may need help with express or implied contracts and their enforceability.
