At the link below you will find the TN law on corporations. Minority shareholder rights are interevowen throughout the code but is more based on common law. Please state your specific issue so we can assit you better.
As a minority shareholder you have very few rights. The rights you have extend to reviewing and inspecting the books and records as well as receiving dividends if the company is profitable. You can also ask the company or other shareholders to buy you out. Unfortunately, I am representing a minority shareholder right now and we are having the same types of issues and the law does not provide much leg to stand on. If you feel that they are forcing you out of the company, you may have a case for a shareholder oppression lawsuit, however, these are extremely costly and probably not worth the legal expense and time involved.
