Federal and state laws provide workers with a wide safety net of workplace rights. One such right is the right to engage in concerted activity. In other words, workers have the right to come together among co-workers and demand improved working conditions. This can be done in a variety of ways: providing the employer with a list of written demands, forming a union or a workers' committee, or even going on strike. The recent national strike of working immigrants, A Day Without Immigrants, was a powerful example of how concerted activity can be used to improve working conditions. Remember, striking is a protected right; your employer cannot fire or demote you for exercising your rights. Congratulations to all those who exercised their right to engage in concerted activity during A Day Without Immigrants! #ADayWithoutImmigrants
For the past 14 years, the Tennessee Bar Association's Leadership Law program has been helping lawyers excel in the legal arena and in the community. The program is designed to outfit lawyers across the state with the information, vision and techniques they need to become emerging leaders in their respective areas of practice as well as in their home towns.
In 2016, Branstetter, Stranch & Jennings, PLLC was listed in the Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers, and our Tennessee law firm was also named one of the "Best Law Firms" by U.S. News & World Report. We are honored to have received the highest possible rating in Nashville - Tier 1 - in two different areas of practice. The first area is employment law (representing individuals) and the second area is municipal law.
