I was terminated from my job yesterday for writing my signature on a sign up sheet for a meeting . My CEO said it was a sloppy signature and therefore she said that meant I was being rude. I did not do or say anything at all to the speaker or to anyone at the meeting. I was wrongly fired because I have been writing sloppy for years ...I am in healthcare. Is there anything legally that I can do?

Unfortunately, probably not. NC is an at will work state, meaning you can be fired for any reason other than discrimination or retaliation. Your best bet is to file for unemployment benefits.
