The Georgia State Board of Workers’ Compensation strives to make employee rights and responsibilities as apparent as possible. Part of the board’s legal duties to workers according to Georgia Code is to provide injured workers with a notice of their “rights, benefits, and obligations.” By law, the board must display such information in locations employees can access. You can currently find the statement of worker rights in Georgia on the state board’s website, under the title “Bill of Rights for the Injured Worker.”
