Also do I have to return to work?

I am sorry to hear your employer is refusing to pay you for wages earned.

Although Georgia does not have its own wage laws, like all other states, Georgia is required to comply with the Fair Labor Standards Act (FSLA). The FSLA requires an employer to pay its employee for wages earned. The employer does not get to determine whether your work was sufficient to receive payment. If you worked the hours, you get paid.

In addition, Georgia is an at-will employment state. This means that the employer and employee may each terminate the employment relationship at any time for any reason or no reason at all (except the employer may not terminate for an illegal reason, such as discrimination). Therefore, you do not have to return to work. You may resign at any time, unless there is a contract for a certain term.

If I don't go back in until I'm assured my payroll has been approved & sent to our Corp office it can be cause for termination correct?

Yes, you are correct.
