North Carolina At-Will Employment

unpaidovertimeleadstoterminationTIn North Carolina, employment in the private sector is considered at-will employment. This means that an employer can fire an employee for any reason or no reason at all.

Despite being an at-will employment state, there are exceptions to the employment at-will rule. It is illegal to fire an employee for reasons that are discriminatory, such as firing an employee for his or her race, national origin, sex, religion, or citizenship status.

It is also illegal to fire an employee if that firing violates a public policy. This includes firing an employee for refusing to lie under oath or for refusing to break the law while at work. Employers also cannot fire an employee for complaining about workplace safety issues or for taking a leave of absence for a serious medical condition.

Finally, employers cannot fire employees if that firing violates the terms and conditions of an employment contract.

North Carolina Wrongful Termination Lawsuit

If an employee is fired for reasons that violate state or federal law, the employee can file a lawsuit to be reinstated to the position or to recover damages for the firing. Depending on the circumstances of the employee's job loss, the employee may be able to sue for infliction of emotional distress or other injuries.
