I live in the very beautiful ex-penal colony of Georgia, and I recently had to deal with something like this; however, laws dealing with employment
differ from state to state, so always check your
state law first.
Certain, very particular circumstances fall under federal law, but your situation would most likely fall under state law.
I will tell you some of the highlights of my story and I hope that you can get something out of it.
Btw... I am not offering you legal advice. I am only sharing my experience with you.
Georgia is an "at will" or very deceptively titled, "right to work" state.
This basically means that you can be fired for no reason.
Yes. That is true, but....
What most people do not know is that if you are let go from a job, even fired, then you still can apply for unemployment.
You might not get it, but you can apply.
If you were to be fired, then the best recourse to take, from my experience in the state of GA, would be to apply for unemployment.
You will be denied at first, but that is when you appeal and go in front of an appeals committed and tell them your story.
I have heard of people getting unemployment for being fired for a ridiculous reason, and I have heard of people not getting unemployment for being
fired for a ridiculous reason, but the the employer who fired you
would be on the hook for paying your unemployment, and you would save the
If the appeals committee finds in your favor.
I hope that you can glean something out of this.
