    Default Re: Detrimental Reliance

    (In some states, even expending the cost of moving may not be sufficient to create a "detrimental reliance" claim.)

    From research years ago for personal study, GA did not even recognize a Public Policy exception to at will employment. I do not know if this has changed?
    You are correct & it has not changed - Ga. does not have a public policy exception to at-will employment.

    According to an article at 'www.spsk.com/Articles/empobligations.cfm'
    the at will employees doctrine does not apply, in New Jersey, until the employee has actually begun work at the job.

    Another article, www.bls.gov/opub/mlr/2001/01/art1full.pdf , has a chart on page 2 which shows that my state, Georgia, does not recognize this exception. Since the first article was written 5 years ago I was inquiring whether Georgia had changed their position since it's writing.

    I see where you came up the 3 exceptions now, all common law probably. There are of course others, statutorily, which I was eluding to besides those three. Title 7 and state parallel laws, whistleblower statutes, age discrimination, etc.

    Some jurisdictions even have laws which forbid an employer from refusing to hire a smoker, of course proving such a claim by an employee is always thier burden in court, and very difficult.

    There are a plethora of discrimination laws out there as far as hiring terms/conditions of employment and termination.

    According to the OP's link, 43 states DO recognize a PP exception. Shame on the other 7.


    Doctor: Nurse, help falsify my documents for state tax purposes or I will fire you.

    Nurse: No I won't.

    Doctor: You are fired.


    A legal termination since a PP exception is not a valid Cause of Action to sue for wrongful discharge in the 7.

    The Commissioners on Uniform state laws enacted the Model employment termination act in the 90's, but NO state has adopted it.

    I came across this years ago when studying employment law. I don't focus on such in my personal studies much anymore, mainly police/constitutional law. I'm rusty, but I soldier on.
