My employer, or rather former employer as of a few hours ago, fired me after I told him that I would sue him for unpaid wages during Atlanta's ice storm. I worked over 10 hours a day clearing out driveways, trees, etc and he only paid us straight pay but no overtime. Can I still get unemployment while I sue him. He told me that he would say misconduct on my separation notice because I threaten to sue him in front of other co-workers. I wasn't loud I just said that I'm going to see you in court.
