Ms. Salonus is an Employment and Special Education attorney serving clients throughout Tennessee.
Ms. Salonus zealously represents employees in array of employment matters including cases of age discrimination under the ADEA; leave issues or interference under the FMLA; disability discrimination, retaliation, and failure to accommodate claims under the ADA; discrimination and retaliation under Title VII; and wrongful terminations arising from reporting illegal activities. Ms. Salonus also has an interest in litigating cases involving denial of employee life insurance benefits or interference with pension plan benefits under ERISA.
While she very much enjoys assisting employees and “righting a wrong,” as they say, or assisting employers with legal compliance to prevent claims or illegal treatment of employees, her biggest passion comes from assisting families of children with disabilities in the school environment.
Ms. Salonus has a personal understanding of what it means to be a parent of a child with a disability. Accordingly, Ms. Salonus has an active and dedicated practice securing the services and accommodations a child rightfully deserves under the Individuals with Disabilities in Education Act (“IDEA”), Section 504, and/or the ADA. She also seeks compensation for physical and/or emotional injuries caused to a child as a result of abuse or illegal actions taken against the child by school officials. Additionally, Ms. Salonus litigates cases involving retaliation against parents or teachers who advocate for the rights of children with disabilities.
