From gourmet butter companies and local apparel retailers to tech startups, Georgia is home to more than 795,000 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’ comp protects small business owners from being sued by an employee when an injury or illness happens. If your small business regularly employs three or more persons, including regular part-time employees, you are required to carry workers’ compensation coverage.
Pie Insurance is excited to join the ranks of insurance companies providing workers’ comp in Georgia.
