Areas We Cover

How We Can Help

  • What is “at-will” employment, and how does it affect your rights?
  • You were fired:: Was your termination lawful?
  • Did your employer retaliate against you?
  • Can your employer demand that you sign a Confidentiality and/or Non-Compete Agreement?
  • Did the NC DES (North Carolina Department of Employment Security (NC DES) deny your unemployment benefits?
  • Did your former employer appeal your unemployment benefits?


Anna Westmoreland has years of experience in representing employees in protecting their rights in North Carolina.  She conducts several in person and telephone appeal hearings in front of the Division of Employment Security (DES) per month. 

  • If your employer appeals an initial determination by the DES, it is your obligation to prove that you are entitled to your benefits. 
  • If the DES denied your benefits initially, you must appeal in order to have a second chance to secure the benefits that you deserve.


Employers have vast rights in our right-to-work State, and it can be difficult to know what actions constitute a wrongful termination.  Many employers offer courses on how not to become a statistic of the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).  Classes like this are intended to protect management and to teach ways to avoid liability for the company.  Discrimination, sexual harassment and retaliation complaints to the EEOC are increasing annually, and employers are prepared. You should be prepared too. 

Anna regularly represents clients in matters of employment law, including wrongful termination, discrimination, retaliation, severance contracts, and unemployment insurance benefits (including “TRA”). 

Employers know their rights, and so should you. Each minute counts. If you have an employment related issue, please contact an experienced legal professional like Site nameWestmoreland Legal immediately to discuss your case.


Losing your employment is a serious matter.  There are many challenges in employment law and most employers protect the company, not the worker.  Westmoreland Legal advises and consults with each client to make the decision that is best for you.
