Question I was fired from my job late October. The day before I was presented with two write ups, one from May and the other from June which weren't signed and had no prior knowledge. I live in NC and was wondering if there was a law saying when I should have been notified of them?
Answer Chris - There is not even a law that says your employer has to have a good reason for terminating you. North Carolina is an "at-will" employment state, which means that you or the employer can terminate the employment contract whenever and for any reason that is not illegal, such as discrimination against members of a protected class. Sorry - it may help you with your unemployment comp claim that you had no true notice of your supposed infractions, but you are not entitled to your job back.
