Even "At Will" Employees Are Protected From Wrongful Termination

Most workers are employed "at will," meaning that they can be dismissed without cause and without warning. Nevertheless, there are a number of federal and state laws in place that protect workers from being fired in certain situations. These laws are violated frequently.

Based in Charlotte and Rock Hill, and serving throughout North Carolina and South Carolina, Jake has practiced employment law for more than 25 years. He has worked extensively as in-house counsel for a national retailer, and understands how businesses try to defend themselves against wrongful termination claims. He will use his knowledge of industry to protect your rights.

Legal Support When Your Rights Have Been Violated At Work

The firm represents individuals who have been dismissed unlawfully for a range of reasons, including those who were:

  • Fired in violation of state and/or federal anti-discrimination laws
  • Fired in retaliation for having reported unsafe workplace conditions
  • Fired in retaliation for reporting sexual harassment
  • Fired for filing whistleblower claims
  • Fired in violation of federal labor laws
