Customer Question
What is the fee...

What is the fee for the advise?

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you documented this or discussed it with HR?

Documented what?

Lawyer's Assistant: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?

Tennessee is an "at will" state, the position is full time

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I would still like to know what the fee will be to obtain advise of whether I have a cause to file a discrimination complaint

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I was recently demoted from a Property Manager position for a HOA Management Company, which I have previous experience and had been with this company for 3 years before excepting the position. The previous Property Manager had no prior experience and was being paid a substantially higher salary and now my replacement Property Manager who also had no experience is being paid approximately $20,000 more than I was. Both the previous and replacement are males, therefore I feel I was and still are being taken advantage of by my employer. I do not want to pursue legal services if I do not have a claim.

I wish to discontinue my request for advise as I feel this is too complicated
Employment Lawyer: Loren, Lawyer replied 8 months ago

Before I answer a bit more detail would be helpful please.

1. Do you have a written employment agreement for a fixed term requiring cause for termination, discipline or demotion?

2. Do you believe you were treated differently than other employees due to race, religion, ethnicity, etc.?
