In July 2022, the Georgia State Board of Workers’ Compensation revised its Bill of Rights for the Injured Worker notice.

Georgia Workers’ Compensation Law Update

  • Weekly maximum compensation of $725 for per week for catastrophic and non-catastrophic accidents, and widowed spouses.
  • Workers able to return to work but at a lower paying job are entitled to a weekly maximum of $483.
  • Widowed spouses with no children will be paid a maximum of $290,000.

Georgia Labor Law Poster Update

All businesses within the State of Georgia must display the new Worker’s Compensation poster along with other state-mandated posting requirements where it is sufficiently accessible and viewable to all employees. This change has been reflected in our Georgia & Federal Labor Law Poster and does require an immediate mandatory update. Failure to meet compliance requirements and display the updated poster could result in fines.

Order the Georgia Labor Law Poster to immediately include this required update.
