Neighbors oppose development of Tennessee green space

While oftentimes real estate growth is good for a city's economic development, sometimes issues regarding the development of property arise. Take, for example, a situation in Hendersonville, Tennessee, where some members of the community are opposed to the development of green space in their area.

Addressing employment law issues in a proactive manner

For employers and employees in Tennessee, the workplace looks very different these days than it did 50 years ago. In particular, laws regarding employee rights and workplace policies have changed in dramatic and important ways. Therefore, it is important for employers to ensure their business complies with applicable employment laws, and it is important for employees to understand their rights under current law.

Emotional vs financial: Factors that may impact asset division

It is easy for most Tennessee residents, including you, to get attached to certain possessions. You may have put a lot of time into saving for a certain asset, or you could have put a lot of effort into restoring or decorating a piece of property to make it just right. Whatever the reason, you are not alone in feeling that some of your assets have become a part of who you are and what you have achieved.

How can a loan workout help homeowners and lenders?

Sometimes, through no fault of their own, financial disaster strikes a Tennessee homeowner. For example, they may have been the victim of a company-wide lay-off leaving them without a source of income, or they may have suffered a severe illness that left them with a mountain of medical debt. No matter what the reason is, however, there are times when a person in Tennessee may find that they cannot meet their monthly mortgage payments.

Workplace discrimination not a new issue in Congress

Issues of workplace discrimination -- particularly sexual discrimination and harassment -- dominated the news headlines in late 2017. These newsworthy events involved not just well-known celebrities, but also politicians throughout the United States. While some employment lawdisputes are taken all the way through the litigation process, others are settled out-of-court. Of course, workplace discrimination in Tennessee and across the nation is not new. In fact, recent statistics reveal that between 2008 through 2012, over $342,000 was spent settling workplace discrimination disputes in the U.S. House of Representatives. Of that, almost $175,000 was paid out to settle disputes involving sexual harassment and discrimination.
