Can an Independent Contractor Get Workers’ Compensation in Georgia?

Just because your employer has you listed as an independent contractor on paper does not necessarily mean you are an independent contractor under the Georgia Workers’ Compensation Act. There are several factors courts will examine to make a determination regarding whether or not the place you work is your employer when you get hurt at work in Georgia and apply for workers’ comp benefits.

Stated simply, it boils down to how much control your employer has over you.

Are you a construction worker? A cable or satellite installer? Temp worker? Feel free to call the Atlanta workers’ compensation attorney, Michael Moebes, for assistance and answers to your questions about whether you are an employee or contractor under Georgia workers’ compensation law.
