If You’ve Been Fired or Believe You’re About To Be Fired, Rich Can Help You Navigate Through This Experience.

In addition to certain federal laws regarding unlawful employment termination, the State of North Carolina has a public policy that prohibits employers from firing an employee because of the employee’s sex, race/color, national origin, disability, age or religion.  Also, North Carolina employers generally may not terminate an employee for refusing to violate a law.

Other unlawful reasons for terminating employment in North Carolina:

  • Testifying truthfully in court
  • Serving on a jury
  • Filing a workers’ compensation claim
  • Reporting violations of health and safety laws or wage and hour laws
