The Georgia’s Workers’ Compensation Act was passed into law in 1920. At that time, the act was considered to be “elective,” meaning employers were not required by law to have it. By 1972 the “elective” provisions of the act were repealed, and every employer with three or more full or part-time employees that regularly work for a business became subject to the Act. Certain types of jobs are not covered, such as real estate sales people, domestic workers, railroad workers and farm laborers.
Today’s Workers’ Compensation Law requires employers to provide coverage for employers to compensate them in the case of work-related injuries, illnesses or death. Failure to maintain coverage for employees is merely a misdemeanor, so check with the State Board of Workers’ Compensation to ensure your employer has the required coverage.
