Dalton, Georgia Workers Compensation Insurance
Workers' compensation was created just over 100 years ago to protect the business owner's assets in the event and employee was injured on the job. Workers Compensation is a tool that protects the business owner and the business' employees in the event of an accident on the job.
If a business has an employee, it is Alpha & Omega Insurance's recommendation that ALL businesses carry workers' compensation on that employee or employees. The risks associated with not having coverage are simply too great. One word comes to mind, Bankruptcy, not to mention the the minimum $500 fine that are associated with busineeses that are in violation in the state of Georgia.
Now to what the state of Georgia requires for Georgia businesses. If you regularly employ three or more employees, part or full time, in Georgia, you are required to carry coverage.
If your business is incorporated, Georgia law considers members of corporations as ALL employees, including officers, all are included in the "three or more rule". It is also irrelevant that the officers of the corporation are exempt from coverage, they are also counted. Simply put, if you regularly have three people working in your corporation, you must have coverage in Georgia.
Interestingly enough, the opposite is true for sole proprietorships and partnerships regarding the "three or more rule". Owners of sole proprietorships and partnerships are employers according the Georgia law and are not counted in the "three or more rule".
In conclusion, to protect what business owners have worked so hard to build, it is my recommendation that any business that has one or more employee MUST have workers' compensation coverage. The alternative can prove disastrous!
