What Does an Employment Attorney Do?

Employment discrimination is a type of discrimination based on a wide variety of factors, such as race, gender, sex, age, origin, or disability just to name a few. Here at East Tennessee Employment Law, we can help with a variety of employment and discrimination related cases:

  • Age Discrimination
  • Disability Discrimination
  • Equal Pay Act
  • Overtime Pay
  • Pregnancy Discrimination
  • Race Discrimination
  • Sex and Gender Discrimination

An employment attorney can help you decide which category of employment discrimination your situation may fall under.

How Long Do Employment Lawsuits Take?

If we can determine that you have a claim, we can start the discrimination lawsuit process. Depending on the type of employment claim you have, a trial can take up to three years.

However, most cases actually don’t go to trial. Many cases are settled out of court, as employment discrimination cases are dismissed at a higher rate than many other cases. Our expert employment discrimination lawyers can help you evaluate all the factors to help you decide which route will work best for your specific situation.
