Good morning. I am sorry to hear of this. What State are you in? Also, why do you believe you were wrongfully terminated? Do you have a contract?

I am in memphis tn and no I do not have no contract
Employment Lawyer: LegalKnowledge, Attorney replied 10 months ago

Thank you for the reply. In Tennessee, employers may legally terminate an employee at any time for any reason, or for no reason without incurring legal liability. However, an employer may not discriminate against any employee on the basis of the employee's race, sex, age, religion, color, national origin, or disability. If one of these are present, you can sue and should speak with an employment law attorney, who can look over the facts and see if there is a valid cause of action. I know this is not ideal but if they no longer wanted to keep you on ( and I am not sure why), they could terminate you and they do not have to even tell you why.

Employment Lawyer: LegalKnowledge, Attorney replied 10 months ago

If you believe you have been discriminated against by an employer, labor union or employment agency when applying for a job or while on the job because of your race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy, gender identity, and sexual orientation), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information, or believe that you have been discriminated against because of opposing a prohibited practice or participating in an equal employment opportunity matter, you may file a charge of discrimination with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). All laws enforced by EEOC, (Title VII of the Civil Rights Act (Title VII), Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), and Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA), except the Equal Pay Act (EPA), require filing a charge with EEOC before a private lawsuit may be filed in court.

Customer service can assist with any issue regarding the charge, as I do not have any information on that. Please let me know if you have any follow up questions or need any clarification on something which I stated above. Also, remember to rate my service at the top of this page, before exiting the site, so I can receive credit for my help. I hope you found it to be 5 STARS!

I want to make sure your experience with the site was as pleasurable as possible and that you are satisfied with the help I provided.
