I recall some time ago finding information that an employer firing an employee at the end of their workday was considered illegal. Discussing my recent termination with a friend, that was the first thing they brought up. They used to be a manager in this state, though it was many years ago.
I can't find anything besides two Yahoo Answers talking about it, and it seems to be some people chiming in with 1-liners of their interpretation, of which the answer conflict with each other.
In Georgia (USA), is it illegal to knowingly let an employee work a full day of work, only to terminate them at the end of the day?
Does change if they are getting fired or laid off? I think technically I was laid off, but I don't see much of a distinction.
