I have an employer that cut my salary status to hourly

Customer Question

I have an employer that cut my salary status to hourly part-time, due to my missing work for documented illness. I've been with the company 3 months, have doc apptmts, two which I was hospitalized. Last one two weeks ago, I received a letter in the office forcing me to clock in and cut my hours in half beginning that same day. Do I have any rights?
JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: North Carolina
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: No I had been communicating with her through email for documentation purposes.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Yes, for the past 3 months of employment, I was forced to sign a file that stated I received a handbook, job description when I just received it two weeks ago, because they are undergoing a state inspection for child care. I wrote her in an email stating that she had me sign the file without actually giving me the handbook and job description.

Thank you for using JustAnswer.

I'm sorry to hear about your situation. Is this illness an on-going matter, or is it something that has been resolved?
