Can I sue for wrongful termination and discrimination instead of breach of contract if the employee fails to provide payment in accordance with an executed severance agreement? I was employed in South Carolina. However, the company states the laws of Nort

I was terminated without warning or official reason. I signed a severance agreement in exchange for releasing the company of any liability. Company provided 4 weeks of payment but now has stopped, violating the severance agreement without providing any reason. The company will not respond to e-mail or mail. The “unofficial” reason given for my termination was lost of confidence in my abilities as a general manager. However, the same reason was expressed for three other employees. One, who was with the company the same length of time as I, was sent for additional leadership training and retained. Another was provided training but then moved to another position without lost of pay. A third, my predecessor was demoted but retain his pay. I had received a merit increase the week before I was terminated. All three are White. My replacement who was hired less than a month after I was terminated is White. I was the only African American on the management team.
