We hope this booklet will help you understand more about your rights as a worker in North Carolina. If you are having a problem at work, here are some things you might want to do:
Hundreds of state and federal laws deny privileges and rights to individuals based on their criminal records, including public benefits, occupational licensing, and child custody. Additionally, many private employers and landlords have screening practices that severely limit opportunities for gainful employment and affordable housing for individuals with criminal records.
If you have been injured on the job, you may have the right to workers’ compensation. Workers’ compensation provides benefits to workers who are injured on the job or who have an illness, disease, or disability caused or made worse by workplace conditions.
Unemployment insurance provides workers with temporary and partial replacement of lost wages during periods of unemployment.
You have the right to be paid for your work. Wage theft is what happens when your boss does not pay you for work you have done, or does not pay you the right amount.
