North Carolina is an employment-at-will state where an employer can fire an employee for good reason, bad reason or no reason at all.  Yes, you can be fired because another employee liked about you.  The only time you can bring a wrongful termination claim is when you can prove that you were really fired due to unlawful discrimination or unlawful retaliation.
