If you are alleging age discrimination, then this falls both under federal and state law. The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) only forbids age discrimination against people who are age 40 or older. The law forbids discrimination when it comes to any aspect of employment, including hiring, firing, pay, job assignments, promotions, layoff, training, fringe benefits, and any other term or condition of employment.
North Carolina however also has a SIMILAR law under NC Gen. Stat. Sec. 143-422.1 et seq.
So both federal and state law may apply here. Let me know if you wish to know more about how to file a claim, etc.
