Of conviction. I have been employed with this company since 2011 and several background checks have been ran since starting. I am on the brink of being terminated for this conviction. As stated I have had no interactions with law enforcement since my conviction. What is my next course of action?

Provide the detailed explanation your employer is requesting and hope for the best.  North Carolina is an employment-at-will state and you can be fired for any reason.

Labor and Employment
Labor and employment attorneys can help both employers and workers prevent, address and resolve a variety of issues related to the employer-employee relationship. Small business owners and managers should consult with employment lawyers when crafting employment policies (including those related to hiring, affirmative action, compensation, medical leave and sexual harassment); negotiating employment contracts, non-compete agreements and severance agreements; and resolving employment-related personnel disputes. Workers should talk to a labor and employment law firm before signing any job-related contracts and for help addressing issues related to discrimination, harassment, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accommodations and Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) requests.
