Am I Eligible For Workers Compensation Benefits

Most employees who enter a contract of employment in Georgia or who suffer an on-the-job injury while working in Georgia are eligible for Georgia workers’ compensation benefits.  Though there are only a few, there are certain types of employees who are not covered by the Georgia Workers’ Compensation Act and, as such, are not eligible for workers’ compensation benefits.  Independent Contractors are not eligible for workers’ compensation benefits either; however, some workers who are called “Independent Contractors” are actually “employees,” so even if you think you are an Independent Contractor, you may actually be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits.
