Wrongful Termination

There is no claim under Georgia law for "wrongful termination."  Georgia is an "at-will" employment state which means that, in the absence of an enforceable employment agreement (such as an employment contract or a collective bargaining agreement), an employee can be terminated for good cause, bad cause, or no cause at all, as long as the reason is not unlawful.  Examples of unlawful reasons include terminations based on discrimination, retaliation, harassment and whistleblowing.  There are also some state law tort claims that an employee that has been wrongly terminated can bring.
