If you are a Georgia employee, it is important to know that Georgia is an at-will State. This means your employer can terminate your employment for any reason, be it good, bad, illogical, or even ugly. However, you cannot be terminated for reasons that are illegal under State or Federal law.
As an at-will State, Georgia law offers limited protections for Georgia workers. Therefore, wrongful termination cases and other employment law claims are often based on violations of federal law.
