North Carolina Legislature Overrides Gubernatorial Veto of Ag-Gag Law
June 6, 2015

After North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory’s veto of the state’s so-called “ag-gag” law, the state legislature reached the required consensus to over-ride the veto.The new law, which becomes effective June 10th,  will allow employers to sue employees who secretly photograph or take videos of workplace activities for  punitive damages, up to $5,000 per day, in addition to compensation for actual damages.

The state legislature pushed through their support for the bill despite a reported $50,000 television ad campaign by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) aimed at defeating the bill.
