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:

  1. Write down what is happening right away, including the date and any witnesses.
  2. If you think you aren’t being paid correctly, write down your start and stop times for work each day, and the times of any breaks.
  3. Keep all of your paystubs, employee handbook, and other papers related to your work.
  4. Make sure you know the full name and contact information for the company and for any supervisors.
  5. Don’t post about work on social media!
