Although South Carolina is an “employment-at-will” state, meaning your employer can fire you for no reason at all, several protections guaranteed by South Carolina and federal law govern when an employer can be held responsible for harassment, discrimination, retaliation or wrongful termination. You may have a lawsuit against your employer if you have experienced a violation of these protections guaranteed to you by the law.
If you have been a victim of illegal workplace practices, you have rights. Gentry Law Firm can help you determine if there has been an unlawful violation against you and what the next steps will be for you to file a claim. It is important to know that there are time limitations that govern the filing of any such claims for employment law violations. If you do not timely pursue your claims, you may be forever barred from doing so. It is important that you seek the assistance of an attorney as soon as possible to ensure that your interests are protected throughout this process and to ensure that you receive the full compensation you are entitled to receive.
