Employer-initiated restraining orders

If you have been accused of violence or abuse of any form by a spouse, girlfriend, boyfriend or other significant person in your life in Tennessee, you will want to understand some of the basic laws that govern these types of allegations. You may have been told by your significant other that they will try to get a restraining order to keep you away from them. While this may or may not be possible, you should know that they are not the only ones who can seek such an order.

According to the Tennessee Code, a company may request a temporary restraining order in some alleged domestic abuse cases. Companies may also seek injunctions in some situations. A company may pursue this type of action if they assert or believe that some form of domestic violence or abuse, including stalking, has taken place against one of their employees. The orders may apply to any actions on company premises or anywhere that the employee may be while on active duty and performing their job.

Actions may involve physically being on the employee's premises or attempting to contact the person while at work either via phone, fax, email, messenger or some other means. The Code defines a course of conduct as actions that may happen over a span of time but that span of time may be relatively short.

If you would like to learn more about the types of restraining orders for alleged domestic violence issues and who may request them, please feel free to visit the restraining order and injunction page of our Tennessee criminal defense website.
