Tennessee is known as an "EMPLOYMENTATWILL" state. Generally, this means that an employer may legally hire, fire, suspend or discipline any employee at any time and for any reason good or bad or for no reason at all. However, an employer may not discriminate against any employee on the basis of the employee's race, sex, age, religion, color, national origin, or disability.
