Employers may not discharge employees for reasons that violate public policy. Although North Carolina is an “employment at-will” state, an employee may have a claim for wrongful termination if their employer let them go for a discriminatory or otherwise improper reason. North Carolina allows employees to bring wrongful termination suits if they have been fired for a reason that violates public policy. If you were fired because you reported your employer’s discriminatory conduct you may also have a claim for retaliation.
At SeiferFlatow, we advocate for victims of wrongful termination and believe that employers should be held accountable for their actions. Our experienced employment lawyers are committed to helping their clients recover for damages resulting from wrongful employment actions.

Attorney Fee Structure in Employment Law Cases:
SeiferFlatow, PLLC’s employment law clients often are enduring economic hardships as a result of issues with their employment. With this is in mind, we attempt to offer a fee structure that strikes a balance between our clients’ economic struggles and our need to be compensated for our legal services. Therefore, we offer several different fee structures in an attempt to satisfy their financial needs.
The most commonly used fee structure is the modified contingency fee. This fee structure is designed to form a partnership with the client and share the risk with them. The modified contingency fee combines an affordable monthly fee with a reduced contingency fee.
Although the modified contingency fee structure is commonly used, there are situations where the modified contingency fee would not be appropriate. One example would be when the client is seeking non-monetary relief. In this situation, an hourly rate or flat rate fee would be offered to the client.
While the fee structures mentioned above are the commonly used fee structures, we are open to discussing “creative” fee structures with the client as well. Our goal is to provide quality, efficient and affordable legal representation. We want everybody to have the opportunity to exercise their rights under the law regardless of their financial status.
