From gourmet butter companies and local apparel retailers to tech startups, Georgia is home to more than 1 million small businesses. The Peach State has proven to be one of the best places to be an entrepreneur, winning numerous awards and recognitions including “#1 (5th year running) in US for best state for business,” “A rated for small business friendliness,” and “3rd top city (Atlanta) in US for startups.” But with more than 99,000 workplace injuries and 171 fatalities in 2016, small business owners need to get coverage to protect their employees and assets.
Regulated by the State Board of Workers’ Compensation, Georgia workers’ compensation helps protect small businesses when an employee gets injured at the workplace. Managed by the state of Georgia, workers’ comp provides pay and medical benefits to employees who have a work-related injury or illness.
Pie Insurance provides workers’ compensation insurance to Georgia’s small businesses.
