Georgia Wrongful Termination

If you’ve recently been let go from your job, you may be wondering whether your dismissal is grounds for a wrongful termination lawsuit.

Georgia is an “at-will” employment state, meaning an employer can fire an employee at any time, for any reason or no reason at all. However, there are exceptions to this standard. Here’s what you need to know.

  • What Is Wrongful Termination?

    In Georgia, employment is presumed to be at-will provided the employer and employee are not bound by a contract. This enables employers to terminate work relationships at any given time, so long as the reason for the firing is lawful.

    Wrongful termination refers to a firing that violates state or federal law. For example, firing someone over their religious beliefs is a violation of federal civil rights law, and may be grounds for a wrongful termination lawsuit.

  • What Are Some Examples of Wrongful Termination in Georgia?

    Because employers in Georgia have significant discretion in ending work relationships, wrongful termination suits can be complicated. However, the following examples are possible exceptions to the at-will rule.

    • Discrimination: If you were fired because of your race, color, national origin, religion, gender, or another protected characteristic, you may have a case for wrongful termination.
    • Retaliation: Retaliation occurs when an employer punishes an employee for an action. For example, if an employee reports her boss to Human Resources, the boss is not allowed to respond by firing her.
    • Breach of Contract: If you have a written contract guaranteeing your employment, and your employer breaches that contract by letting you go, you may have grounds for a lawsuit. Similarly, if your contract states that you will be employed for a certain duration of time, and you are fired before that time is up without good reason, you may be able to take legal action.
  • What Should I Do if I Think I’ve Been Wrongfully Terminated?

    If you believe you may have been wrongfully discharged, contact a labor and employment lawyer at one of Morgan & Morgan’s Georgia offices. You may be entitled to compensation for lost wages, lost benefits, emotional distress, and more.
