Retaliatory Discharge in Tennessee: 2014 Law and Other New Developments
Retaliatory Discharge in Tennessee: 2014 Law and Other New Developments Webinar 9/16/2014 2:00:00 PM

Butler Snow attorneys David L. Johnson and Valeria Gomez will present Retaliatory Discharge in Tennessee: 2014 Law and Other New Developments in an upcoming webinar.  Details are below:


 

On July 1, a new law took effect that impacts retaliatory discharge in Tennessee. Retaliatory discharge occurs when an employee is fired or punished for engaging in activities that are protected by law.

The new law imposes a cap on compensatory damages aggrieved employees can recover under all three statutes
-- the Tennessee Human Rights Act, the Tennessee Public Protection Act, and the Tennessee Disability Act -- for future monetary losses, emotional pain and suffering, inconvenience, mental anguish, loss of enjoyment of life, and other nonmonetary losses. The new law also affects whistleblower lawsuits by eliminating the separate common law claim for retaliatory discharge.

At this interactive webinar, your presenters will explain the legislature’s most recent changes as well as other new developments that impact retaliatory discharge in Tennessee. Don't miss out on this must-attend event for both Tennessee attorneys and employers. 

 

Webinar Agenda: 

  • Recent Tennessee legislation impacting the common law retaliatory discharge cause of action and claims under the Tennessee Public Protection Act 
  • Required elements to establish a retaliatory discharge cause of action 
  • Recent Tennessee case law developments, including what courts recognize to implicate an important public policy interest so as to be actionable 
  • The current status of summary judgment practice applicable to retaliatory discharge claims 
  • Tips for companies to minimize the risk of defending a retaliatory discharge claim
