Breach of Fiduciary Duty In the Employment Context in Georgia

The Georgia Supreme Court has held that fiduciary duties are owed where a confidential relationship exists between the parties. Atlanta Market Center Management Co. v.

. . . whether arising from nature, created by law, or resulting from contracts, where one party is so situated as to exercise a controlling authority over the will, conduct, and interest of another or where, from a similar relationship of mutual confidence, the law requires the utmost good faith, such as the relationship between partners, principal and agent, etc.
