I was terminated from a NC State government position because I was said to have left the building multiple times, for multiple hours on several occasions. This was absolutely not true. I asked for proof from my employer and they said someone told them. I asked if they checked the security tape for both entrances/exits. They said yes and they were not able to find any footage of me leaving. I applied for unemployment and the State denied it. I appealed and won. The unemployment office specifically said all charges the State presented were found to be untrue and without validity. I do understand NC is an at-will employment state. However, it should be unlawful for an employer to discharge an employee based on hearsay, lies, slander, libel, etc. Should I seek the help of an attorney?
