Well, in most states employment is at will, which means you can be fired with or without cause.

However, you cannot be fired for retaliation.  So, that being said, contact the following:

1. For an administrative agency try the Georgia Dept of Labor and file a complaint/inquiry: http://www.doi.state.nv.us/G-AutoGuide-12-24-08.pdf

2. Consult with a private labor law attorney at www.attorneypages.com and check his or her record at the Georgia State Bar.
