NC Labor Laws: How Much better can it Get?
NC Wage and Hour Act of 1979 follows suit with Majority Federal Laws..
1) rest breaks and meal breaks are NOT required for any employee over 16
2) there is no limit to the amount of overtime an employer can request and no requirement of notice inclusive of any possible re-scheduling including same day OT
3) the U.S.A. is at will employment, meaning outside of 1) ethnic bias or 2) retaliation for complaint to a government office, an employer can fire you at any time for any reason
YET: your wages will be auto-drafted for child support in any situation involving medicaid or other government involvement of the child and roughly 60 of 300 of today's inmates in this county are in jail for failure to pay support... court action can be be brought after 1 month's failed payment...
