Reshaping Employment Disputes
Workplace conflict can be especially difficult to resolve. You may love the work but struggle in the environment due to any number of reasons that are possibly illegal, such as discrimination, harassment, not being paid for overtime work, among others. Many people fear they will lose their job if they look to resolving the matter.
At The Lemons Law Firm, PLLC, attorney Carena Lemons assists executives and employees who are part of the management and leadership team in discrimination matters against their employer. She works with you to resolve your case either by agreement or through a lawsuit. She can also prepare a pre-employment contract to protect your job security with your new employer.
North Carolina Is An ‘At-Will’ Employment State
What this means is that an employer can hire and fire an employee without cause as long as it is not for reasons that are against public policy. For example, it is illegal to fire you for discriminatory reasons, such as for your race, religion, gender or age if you are over 40 years old, among others.
Government employees, however, have extra rules that protect their employment. We represent federal employees in Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) mediation and Office of Resolution Management (ORM) proceedings.
If you are not interested in suing your employer and have been offered a severance agreement, attorney Lemons can negotiate on your behalf. Call or send an email today to learn more about obtaining the experienced representation you need in one of these matters.
