North Carolina is an employee at will state. This means that in North Carolina an employee can be fired for any reason, or no reason at all. However, an exception to the employee at-will rule is discrimination.
North Carolina law prohibits employers from discriminating based on race, color, national origin, sex, religion, disability, age, HIV or AIDS, or military service. The law only applies to businesses that have at least 15 employees.
If you have experienced discrimination that has affected your employment through: hiring and firing, compensation, promotion, transfer, suspension, benefits, pay, retirement plans or disability accommodations for leave – You May Have A Claim.
