Doji, Inc. d/b/a Demos Steakhouse v. Tennessee

Date: August 11, 2011

Tennessee Supreme Court

The issue concerns whether an employer disputing an unemployment (UI) claim needs to present live testimony from customers and co-workers to prove that a termination was based on misconduct.  Previously, documents like customer complaint cards and employee personnel records were admitted without testimony. 

Status:  DECIDED.  Amicus brief filed on 8/4/09.  Court ruled employee’s actions did not amount to misconduct and awarded UI benefits.  Amicus brief filed in support of Supreme Court review.  On 6/16/10, the Tennessee Supreme Court denied review.
