Hello,Thank you for the information and what I assume is your question, which is whether or not you have any legal recourse for your termination
. Just to clarify the law in NC, it is an employment "at will
" state. "Right to work" has to do with mandatory union membership, "at will" employment has to do with what you are talking about, which is that an employer may terminate an employee for any, or no, reason and with no notice or warning unless the termination would violate a written contract, a written policy, or an employment discrimination
law. That means that unless your situation falls into one of the exceptions I mentioned, the employer would acting within the laws even if the termination seemed unfair or misguided. In other words, there is no law that says an employer must make the same decision with every similar situation. They can be arbitrary in their decision unless they are treating one employee less favorably simply because of that employee's race, national origin, sex, age (over 40), disability, religion, pregnancy or AIDS/hiv status. Therefore unless your situation falls within the exceptions I mentioned, there would be no legal recourse. There might be an option to write an appeal letter to senior management, but no legal options. If your situation does fit into one of the exceptions, then you will want to sit down with a local employment law
attorney and discuss filing suit. Please let me know if you need any clarification.
