To get you started, The Quinn Law Firm has provided this list of frequently asked questions that we hear from our North Carolina clients.
- I was fired. Did my employer wrongfully terminate me?
Most employers are at-will employers, which means that they can fire workers for any reason that does not violate employment law. However, if an employer fires you in violation of local, state or federal law, then you may have a case for wrongful termination.
- What is a hostile work environment?
Many people mistakenly believe that a hostile work environment is any situation that is when coworkers or a supervisor make the workplace difficult to endure. This is not true. Bullying does not necessarily indicate a hostile workplace. A hostile workplace occurs when discrimination based on sex, race, age, disability, religion or nationality makes work difficult or impossible.
- Can I recover additional damages in an employment lawsuit?
Often, yes. A lawsuit can help you recover unpaid wages and unreimbursed work expenses. You may also recover damages for pain and suffering, loss of earning potential, legal fees and punitive damages.
- How do I know whether I have a case?
The best way to determine whether you have an actionable case is to speak with a lawyer who focuses on workers’ rights. At (NAP name), Nancy Quinn has handled hundreds of cases involving numerous employment law issues. In a free consultation, she can discuss your situation and help you understand your legal options.
- Why should I hire an employment lawyer?
In some very rare cases, workers can negotiate with their employers to resolve their issues. This does not work for everyone. Employers have only one priority: their own bottom line. A lawyer can advocate for your rights and ensure that you recover the maximum compensation available.
