Georgia State Workers' Compensation Poster Has Been Updated

The Workers' Compensation poster has been changed in the state of Georgia, reflecting the change to a maximum weekly compensation. An employee is entitled to weekly income benefits, if they are unable to work more than 7 days. An employee will receive two-thirds of their average weekly wage, but no more than $500.00 per week for an accident in which occurred on or after July 1, 2015.  

This is a change that has been made to reflect maximum compensation for temporary total disability benefits and maximum weekly compensation for temporary partial disability benefits. A method by which an employer may satisfy the requirements for furnishing medical care known as Conformed Panel of Physicians has been eliminated. Another update includes, employers are now only required to post either the Panel of Physicians (WC-P1) or the MCO poster.

This change is mandatory, all employers must update their state posters. To view or purchase your updated Georgia labor law posters, please click HERE.

The Effective date is: August 9, 2015

Between me and my husband we've owned more MP3 plraeys over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I've settled down to one line of plraeys. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
