Most workers will face violations of their employment rights at some point in their careers. That can involve wrongful termination, unpaid wages (wage theft), sexual harassment, racial discrimination, and disability discrimination. It can be frustrating and even devastating when it happens to you and threatens your livelihood. In some cases, you may not know if you have legal rights at all. And on top of all that, you only have one chance to get it right. You’ll need a good North Carolina employment lawyer.

Good Lawyers can:

  • Evaluate the incident or issue

  • Explain your options

  • Guide you through the process

  • Negotiate with adverse or at-fault party

  • File a lawsuit if necessary

  • Above all else, fight for you

We get it. And we can help. In most cases, your dispute will be against a person, business, or agency that has a lot of control and effect on your life. They will probably have lawyers on their side, and it may feel like the odds are stacked against you. Our skilled employment and discrimination lawyers have experience representing and defending the same people and businesses you’ll be up against and use that experience to help clients like you. No case is too small; if it’s important to you, it’s important to us.
