    Answered . Georgia recognizes the doctrine of employment at will. Employment at will means that in the absence of a written contract of employment for a defined duration, an employer can terminate an employee for good cause, bad cause or no cause at all, so long as it is not an illegal cause. So, you question doesn't really matter regarding fighting the termination.

    Answered . Sorry about your termination, but your employer does not need a good reason to fire you. You can be fired at the employer's will, so long as the reason is not discriminatory. This means you cannot be fired because of your race, gender, (old) age, religion, national origin/ethnicity or disability. In Georgia, however, you can be terminated for just about any other reason.

    Answered . It is not clear from your question whether you have an employment agreement. If you do have an agreement the terms of the agreement may control your rights upon termination. Generally, if the contract conflicts with the provisions of an employee policy or procedure, the contract would take precedence over the employer's policies and procedures. If you do not have an agreement, you are probably terminable for any reason unless it is an illegal reason.
