Can an injunction be renewed?

Within the three months before an injunction is set to expire, your employer may apply to renew it by filing a new petition for an injunction following the same rules as the initial petition.1

1 Ga. Code § 34-1-7(e)

If my employer files a petition seeking an injunction under this law, does that affect the employer’s duty to provide me with a safe workplace?

Your employer is still required to provide you with a safe workplace under local, state, and federal laws.1 If you feel your employer is failing to do so, you may want to talk to a lawyer to see if there are other options available to you.
