WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — New details are emerging about fallout from the closure of Wilmington based First Med EMS.
Tuesday, a lawsuit was filed in federal court alleging the company violated the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, because it did not provide at least 60 days’ notice of termination.
“I thought it was a bad joke,” said former FirstMed employee Elaine Carriker. “When I walked in Friday night I thought something was funny and I kept asking questions and I was told to mind my own business.”
Attorney Jack Raisner, who filed the suit on behalf of former First Med employee Branden Engle, says the layoffs could not have come at a worse time.
