North Carolina Employment Laws

The federal government sets minimum standard for employment protection, such as the federal minimum wage and laws prohibiting discrimination. But states have their own employment laws, either strengthening federal laws or adding new protections altogether. While the minimum wage in Texas defers to the federal standard, the state places special restrictions on child labor. This section covers North Carolina employment laws and regulations, including state civil rights laws; payday requirements; legal holidays; statutes protecting whistleblowers; and labor laws affecting unions.
