Can You Be Fired For No Reason in Tennessee?

In Tennessee, you can be fired for no reason. Employers may legally terminate an employee at any time for any reason, or for no reason without incurring legal liability. 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. Likewise, an employee is free to leave a job at any time for any or no reason with no adverse legal consequences. There are other exceptions to Tennessee's "EMPLOYMENT-AT-WILL" doctrine. Tennessee employees may not be disciplined or discharged at-will for:

  • Voting in elections
  • Wage garnishment
  • Being called to jury duty

What Constitutes Harassment?

Discrimination against an employee can take many forms, but typically it is recognized when an employer, or governing entity, denies an employee advancement and/or employment opportunity due to any defining characteristic. Furthermore, it is important to remember that Tennessee enforces discrimination at both the state and the federal level.

Discrimination is negative workplace bias based on:

  • Race
  • Gender
  • Skin Color
  • Sex
  • Sexual Orientation
  • Age
  • Disabilities
