South Carolina is an "at will" employment state, meaning that unless an employee has an employment contract or collective bargaining agreement, they are subject to termination at any time, for any reason, or no reason at all. The law only affords protection against being terminated for an unlawful reason (e.g., discrimination due to things like race, religion, or disability, or violations of public policy, such as being fired for serving on jury duty).Now, if the employees make false statements about you that get you terminated, you may have a claim against them for defamation of character.Dd you need clarification or additional information about my answer?
