    Georgia is an at will state, so unless you had a contract for a set amount of time, its likely you wont have much of a claim for your reliance.

    As the others have said, Georgia in an at will state. Having you sign the agreement really doesn't serve a whole lot of purpose other then to give you notice of the fact that you are an at will employee. It might also be for the purpose of using controlling law from whatever state the employer is in, but still subjecting you to at will status.

    The statute of limitations is 2 years, however you may have additional claims depending on the circumstances of the case. The statute of limitations can also be tolled if the person with the claim is under a certain age.
