Georgia is an employment-at-will state. That means your employer can fire you at any time for nearly any reason. This contractual relationship extends to those injured on the job, and you can be legally terminated while you are on workers’ compensation. Fortunately, there are protections under Georgia law if that happens.
In our latest video, skilled attorney Humberto Izquierdo, Jr. explains how your protections depend on what your treating physician says about your ability to work. He also provides examples of common work restrictions you may have been under at the time your employment was terminated.
