Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello George and thank you for your question. I am very sorry to see you are encountering such a situation. Unfortunately Georgia, as you likely know, is an employment at will state which means you may be fired for no reason at all. An investigation may lead anywhere and sometimes innocent folks are disciplined. There is no definite legal answer here so if you feel termination may be the outcome, it is possible you might collect unemployment compensation, if needed. If you quit, there is a high probability unemployment compensation would be denied. So you might consider this in your decision. I hope this helps and ask for your positive rating after reading this or the service will not pay me for my work.
