Sure, it will cost you attorneys fees and you have mentioned no damages. Find another job.

Yes you can sue and you can also have her charged criminally. In the future, however, I would suggest you not walk away from your boss when he/she is talking to you unless you have a very good reason.

No. You were not in fear of injury and you were not injured. However, report her to HR.

Yes, in GA, you may sue for the assault, but you are likely to get nothing for such a minor act. You must prove some actual damages to win big You will, however, likely lose your job. Is it worth it?
