How long do I have to be on the job before I am covered by workers’ compensation?

If your employer has three or more employees regularly in his or her service in Georgia, your employer is subject to the Workers’ Compensation Act, and is required to have workers’ compensation insurance coverage. Your employer may be any individual, corporation, sole proprietor, partnership, non-profit organization, limited liability company, or other entity which has employees in its hire. In Georgia, you are covered by your employer’s workers’ compensation policy beginning with your first day on the job.
