Mass torts: Facebook targets birthday messages

For decades, consumers have complained about junk mail, beginning with the flyers and mailers through the post office, and now with spam emails and text messages. Fortunately, laws such as the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) and robotexting laws regulate the amount and kinds of contact solicitors and others can make with consumers. However, these laws do not always stop some companies from accosting people in Tennessee with unwanted communications, which may lead to mass torts claims.

Misclassified skilled workers bring wage and hour disputes

Because certain jobs require more training or education, those who are hired for those jobs may expect to get higher pay than those in other positions.

However, some employers may try to take advantage of a laborer by incorrectly classifying him or her to avoid paying a fair wage. When these wage and hour disputes arise, Tennessee workers may seek legal assistance to get what is rightfully theirs.
