Has your employer discriminated against you on the basis of gender, race, national origin, age, disability, religion, or sexual orientation?
Or, does your employer engage in misconduct or create an unsavory environment by looking the other way when other employees engage in inappropriate sexual misconduct or harassment? Whether these unlawful acts occur in the context of hiring, firing, compensation practices, or just the day-to-day work environment, workers have rights under the North Carolina and U.S. Constitutions. Victims of these wrongs need a strong voice to help end these types of employment practices.
What are the most common types of employment lawsuits?
Harassment, including sexual harassment
Breach of your employment contract
Family and Medical Leave Act Violations
Maternity/paternity leave denial
Denial of benefits
Through an employment claim, you may be able to recover the wages you rightfully earned.
If you faced wrongful termination, you may even be reinstated at your job. Finally, if you have suffered the injustice of discrimination then the courts may issue an injunction to protect not only your rights, but the rights of everyone at your company.
