I just got terminated from my job and my former employer is keeping all my personal belongings, including plants pictures, etc. Most importantly, they have my hard drive which has documents I created for work and information that I was building a case against them for retaliation
. What can I do? Do I have rights in North Carolina?
JA: Because employment law
varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: North Carolina
JA: Is the employment agreement "at will
," union, full time or part time?
Customer: I don't recall seeing documents that they can hold onto personal belongings for 3 or 4 days. They said they are going through my personal hard drive for proprietery information.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I was full time. Worked there 18 years. I I Went to the EEOC
last December. This is retaliation. I can prove I was being held to different standards than co=workers. This information is on my hard drive they now have and refuse to give back to me.
