Workers’ Comp – Georgia

House Bill No. 548, approved on May 1, 2012, makes Georgia the first state to adopt legislation that prohibits a franchisee from being considered an employee of its franchisor. This new law protects franchisors from liability for workers’ compensation claims made by their franchisees, but it is unclear whether the law would extend to other claims, such as tort liability. The law goes into effect July 1, 2012.
