This area of the law is very difficult and highly specialized. I would consult with a local employment discrimination attorney. He or she will know whether and how to position the case with the EEOC, the Tennessee Human Rights Commission or the Court system.

Q: Child on child abuse question for state of Tennessee.

If DCS states that an incident that occurs with two kids under the age of 13 is not considered abuse, how do some kids get put on the sex offender registry? And some of them get sent to detention centers. Does it depend on the incident, I know rape and fondling are vastly different.
