What is the statute of limitations for discrimination?

Can you please tell me the statue of limitations in Tennessee for suing and employer for wrongful termination and sexual discrimination? The employer is stalling regarding re-instatement and I am afraid to wait too long if I do decide to sue. Thank you so much for your time.

The statute of limitations for an action under the Tennessee Human Rights Act
is one year from the date of the discriminatory act. The same would apply to a wrongful termination action based on a discrimination claim or whistleblower claim.
