I am 62 years old and Bi Polar. I was fired for ( communicating ) a threat to the GROCERY Mgr on 02/28/2018 and was not allowed to tell my side of what happened.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

N.c.

Lawyer's Assistant: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?

Full time

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
