Can a Jackson resident challenge an eminent domain taking?

Property owners in Jackson may take pride in their homes and land. Some people make a living off of their land or property, for example, through farming or having a business they own on their property. A person's private land and the buildings on it may be the most valuable asset they own. However, does the government have any right to take a person's private land?

Whistleblowers are protected by law from workplace retaliation

It takes a certain amount of bravery for a person in Tennessee to take action and "blow the whistle" on unlawful actions committed by their employer. Some unscrupulous employers will violate the law, for their own gain and at the expense of honest employees. However, workers may fear that their employer will reprimand them or fire them for speaking out as a whistleblower. Fortunately, federal Equal Employment Opportunity laws protect workers in such situations from being retaliated against at work.

Arbitration may be an alternative to litigation in Tennessee

Some business owners in Tennessee might be under the impression that if they have a business dispute, their only option is to litigate the matter before a judge in a trial. However, the litigation process can be costly, both in time and finances, that the business could be using to better itself. Litigation can also have a negative effect on worker morale and could tarnish the business' reputation. What business owners may not know is that not every dispute needs to be litigated. Alternative dispute resolution processes, such as arbitration, may be a possibility.

Know what to expect if you have to walk through probate process

The probate process involves distributing assets and money from a Tennessee resident's estate after he or she passes away. The court oversees every step, ensuring that debts owed by the estate are paid and that appropriate beneficiaries get the right assets. The probate process can be lengthy, complex and confusing for a grieving family.

Tennessee landlords have rights when tenants abandon the premises

Renting out apartments can be a lucrative endeavor for many people in Tennessee. But, just like any other business dealing, this endeavor relies on contracts -- specifically leases. Landlords depend on their tenants to pay rent on time and to possess the premises. Sometimes, however, rent goes unpaid and the tenants cannot be found. Tennessee law addresses what rights landlords have in such situations.
