HR and Employment Law Resources for Georgia

Georgia state image

Georgia is an employer-friendly state. The state’s employment laws do not exceed federal law in as many areas as some states, but there is still a lot that an employer in this state needs to know. For example, Georgia’s Sex Discrimination in Employment Law (GSDEL) gives additional protection than federal law.

This page is a round-up of the state and municipal laws in Georgia.
