Charlottesville, VA asked in Employment Law for North Carolina

Q: What options do I have if my employer is trying to constructively make me quit and has threatened my life

Basically a few months ago I was accused of no call no show. That wasn't the case and I was allowed to keep my job but since this incident my manager that tried to have me fired over the no call no show has been making my day to day miserable I walk on eggshells fearing everything I do might get me fired. And last night I was told that I never do anything at my job and my life was threatened for not wanting to sign a document. I feel like I do my job well and do what is asked of me. What are my options?

A: The obvious answer, if you are working someplace that is threatening your life to continuing to work there, go someplace else. Your life is more important that any job. Death threats are illegal, even in No. Carolina, you could report the death threats to the police as this is also a crime. Death threats are also a basis for Constructive termination, if you leave it is not a voluntary quit. This is an employee rights question. You need to consult an attorney in your local area that practices this kind of law. Thank you for using Justia Ask a Lawyer.
