Based on the laws in the state of Ga. you do not have a case . If you were incapacitated and unable to work - you should have gone out on Short term disability or taken a LOA . Unfortunately being employed somewhere for 11 yrs is a gift .In Georgia the employer does not have to have a reason to terminate you . You can file for unemployment and if they don't fight it you may get approved for the max of 300 per week . Good luck
