Significant Changes to Georgia’s Workers Comp Notices

July 15th, 2015

Two separate Georgia workers compensation posters have changed, and your Georgia labor law posters must be updated.

Changes to the Workers Compensation Bill of Rights Poster

The newest Workers Compensation Bill of Rights poster has a date of 7/2015 and contains a number of changes. There are new maximum weekly benefits in the “Employee Rights” section of the Georgia Workers Compensation Bill of Rights poster, and the new information is as follows:

  • The maximum for “catastrophic” injuries has increased from $525 to $550 for job related injuries.
  • The maximum for “non-catastrophic” injuries has increased from $525 to $550 for job related injuries.
  • For those who are not currently working, but are capable of entering the workforce with restrictions for a period of 52 weeks, the maximum reduced amount increased from $350 to $367.
  • The maximum for those who are able to return to work but can only get a lower paying job because of their injury has increased from $350 to $367
  • The maximum for dependents of an employee who has died as a result of an on-the-job accident has increased from $525 to $550.

A Second Workers Compensation Notice Was Removed

In addition to the changes to the Workers Compensation Bill of Rights labor law poster highlighted above, another workers compensation notice is no longer required to be posted. According the GA Board of Workers Compensation website, it is no longer necessary to post the Official Notice for Conformed Panel of Physicians notice. The law has changed, and this is no longer one of the options for providing medical care for injured employees.

Updating Your Posters

With these required changes to these employment posters, it is now time to update your state labor law posters at any of your Georgia locations. Although we make it easy to see when changes have occurred on our website, the easiest way to maintain workplace compliance is to enroll in Poster Compliance Center’s OneSystem 1-Year Compliance Plan. Through our poster service, you can trust that updated posters will be heading your way without any effort. Now, doesn’t that sound nice?
