Tennela regularly seeks to educate our legislators regarding issues that affect employees. We do those through contacting key legislators and informing them of the consequences of proposed bills and the effects on the workplace. One such bill was Senate Bill 940 that sought to overturn an important Tennessee Supreme Court opinion which rejected a procedural process that keeps employee's cases from reaching a jury. SB0940.
