An independent contractor is not covered under Georgia’s workers’ compensation plan. Workers’ compensation insurance carriers will attempt to avoid coverage for your injuries and wages based upon their belief that you are an independent contractor. The determination as to whether you were an independent contractor or an employee is complex and involves many different facts. An experienced workers’ compensation may be able to establish that you are covered under worker’s compensation when it is questionable.
