The state of Georgia is an employment at will state. This means that an employer may fire an employee at any time for any reason. Unlike other states, Georgia’s anti-discrimination statutes only cover workers employed by the state. Federal law, however, protects a number of private employees from both workplace discrimination as well as other abuses. If you believe that you have been discriminated against by our employer and work in the private sector then it is important to find out whether you are protected. Our Atlanta based employment lawyers are here to help clarify your rights. Contact our attorneys for today for an initial consultation.

Federal laws do not protect all private sector employees. It can be confusing as to whether or not one has any rights when a worker has experienced unfairness.

Our attorneys will use your initial consultation to determine whether your employer is or was required to follow certain laws and we will take steps to determine whether you have a valid case. We will file the necessary complaints with the EEOC after analyzing relevant evidence.
