Knoxville Employment Law Attorneys

Employment law entails sensitive issues for both employees and employers. At Hodges, Doughty & Carson, PLLC, we help our clients understand employment law from a broad perspective. The rights, interests and privacy of employees and employers must be protected, and our Knoxville employment law lawyers have substantial experience pursuing legal remedies for both parties separately. Litigation is not always the right solution. Most disputes and issues can be resolved through negotiation or mediation, but we are prepared to take our clients' cases wherever we must for best possible results.

We will be honest and realistic from the very beginning of our discussion about your particular legal matter. Our attorneys will help you understand all aspects of the law that affect your situation. We will present the pros and cons of all your options, and we will discuss your realistic opportunities for success.

Established, Focused and Informed Counsel

Our law firm has been serving the unique needs of clients throughout middle and eastern Tennessee for more than 80 years. We provide compassionate and aggressive representation to individuals and groups of employees in all industries. We also vigorously protect the legal needs of employers throughout the region with advice and representation that enable informed decisions.

Our experiences representing the very different needs of employees and employers provide our clients with strategies and tactics that are designed to produce results from the outset.

We provide employees with legal protections, and we pursue compensation for damages. Punitive damages and/or injunctive relief can also be obtained in some cases with the goal of deterring or preventing future employer violations.

Employers should be well prepared to avoid or defend their actions pertaining to employment contracts and state and federal legal issues such as:

  • Hiring and termination of employees
  • Wage and hour laws
  • Employee leave, including the Family Medical Leave Act
  • Employee privacy
  • Harassment and discrimination, including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act and the American with Disabilities Act

We also help employers review and draft contracts, employee policies, and non-compete and confidentiality agreements. We carefully review and assess employment documents and manuals for plaintiffs and defendants. We can help you determine if your rights or policies have been seriously violated. Our work on your behalf can provide dispute resolution in your best interests, and we will litigate when necessary.
