Equal Pay Litigation

Do you suspect you’re being paid less than men in your workplace? Social attitudes and the law have changed, but employers have been slow to ensure their employees receive equal pay. As a result, hardworking women across Tennessee are being paid less than their male counterparts and they deserve equal compensation. An equal pay claim is a claim alleging that your employer pays or has paid you less than men in the workplace performing similar duties. In bringing a successful equal pay claim, you may be entitled to as much as double the amount of unpaid wages from your employer.

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and Tennessee Equal Pay ACT (TEPA) require women to be given equal pay as men for doing the same type of work. Both statutes can apply to your case.

If you suspect you are being paid less than men at work, contact an experienced attorney to represent you. Freeman & Fuson can help you receive the pay you deserve. Contact our office at 615.298.7272 today.

Client Reviews
I loved working with Sarah and Joey. They are very kind people who made sure I understood every step of the process. They treated me with kindness continuously and I would definitely use them again! Taylor
Joey is a talented lawyer who cares about his clients. Sarah his assistant is a true professional, but more than that they care about you as a person first. I would highly recommend the team. Bill Hoskinson
Relief! Mark Freeman is the best lawyer I have ever had. He took care of my Criminal Case in one day. Answered all phone calls and returned them all as well. He didn't hesitate to answer any of my questions. I am very thankful he had my case dropped! Not many lawyers can do that. I highly recommend him. He treats you as more so family than a client. If I ever have another case Mark Freeman will be my lawyer. Peter P.
Joey: Just wanted you to know how appreciative I am to be represented by such an outstanding attorney. You did an awesome job. Thank you for your help and support throughout. I have NEVER gotten so much for my money with any other attorney before. I'm looking forward to referring you as much as possible in the future. Thanks again buddy. Charles G.
I just want to say that Mrs. Carolanne King is the greatest lawyer I have ever had. She is truly amazing and knows how to get the job done. She walked with me through the whole court process and worked for me when everyone else said that they could not help me. I am truly grateful for the law firm of Freeman and Fuson. D.D
