Dear HR Executive,
Toe the line on federal employment law, and North Carolina law could still trip you up:
  • Allow managers to yell at employees? A North Carolina jury may find you guilty of inflicting emotional distress.
  • Fail to report an employee’s illegal online activities? You could be liable for a huge negligence suit.
  • Forget to check an applicant’s references? If that employee later commits criminal misdeeds, you can face a massive negligent-hiring lawsuit.

It’s not easy being an employer in North Carolina. Disgruntled employees and their big-shot lawyers use all sorts of laws to get even with employers. Plus, North Carolina jurors are famously generous to fired employees. And North Carolina lawyers are notorious for using state laws to sue employers in all kinds of creative ways – even if the employer complies perfectly with federal law.

Make even one little employment law mistake, and your organization could be making the evening news and every newspaper for miles around.

Here’s why: Attorneys used to be satisfied with suing employers under well-defined federal laws like the ADA, FLSA and the FMLA. But Congress cut the amount of money employees could win in federal cases (and that cut the attorney’s share).
So, to make a bigger haul, lawyers are coming after
North Carolina employers through state and even local laws.
The bad news: Those lawyers can use a mountain of laws against you – with absolutely NO limit on how much a generous jury can award to disgruntled employees. Worse yet: Today’s litigious workers and super-aggressive lawyers aren’t just going after companies – they’re also suing supervisors, managers and HR professionals personally.
That means your bank account, your home and everything else you’ve
worked so hard for is at risk every time you make a decision at work.
Lawsuit-happy employees may rely on friendly juries and ferocious attorneys. But with the guidance right here, right now, you may never have to face them in court.
That’s because your protection starts now with this sample issue of North Carolina Employment Law, among the newest of the well-known HR Specialist advisory newsletters.
Use your free sample issue at right to help you make smart decisions in your workplace, including:
  • Learn how you and your management team risk personal liability for mistakes on time sheets (page 1).
  • Discover why North Carolina employees can earn a bigger windfall in sexual harrassment lawsuits – and what you can do to prevent it (page 1).
  • Find out how to stop employees from taking advantage of your leave laws and reining in their abuse of FMLA intermittent leave (page 3).
  • Understand when you must pay hourly employees for their travel time (page 7).
  • Learn the answers to YOUR employment law questions in our popular Mailbag column (page 8).
And much more!
