All laws pertaining to workman's compensation insurance are inacted and enforced by the resident state. It would be necessary to contact the states labor relations board to find out the procedure for obtaining such coverage.

An alternative available in most states for certain workers is Occupational Accident and Contingent Liability. When paired together, they can provide many of the same protections, and in some cases can be better. The best fits for this option are volunteers and self employed, subcontracted workers.

As an aside, I don't disagree with the original answer. However, if a worker lives in one state, is employed by a company in another state, and travels on business to a third state where an accident occurs, he has a choice under which state to make his claim under Workers Comp.

What is workmans compensation?

In Georgia Workers' Compensation insurance falls under the Workers' Compensation Act which defines the responsibility of the employer to provide prompt medical and disability benefits for injuries sustained on the job by workers. This is insurance that the employer, certain employers, are required to have. This insurance covers the employees who have injuries that result in partial or total incapacity or death. In return, the employer is shielded from tort liability for these injuries. In other words, an employee should receive income and medical benefits and the employer generally can't be sued for the injury. If you have been injured, contact your LOCAL Workers' Compensation Attorney.


Can you use Workman's Comp if you work under a 1099 contract?

First. My answers are for U.S. Employees ONLY. If you're a 1099 employee and you work in any setting, You are covered by Workman's Comp. If you work for a company and they pay you 1099, but you work for them, same place every day, etc, they MUST carry Workmans Comp insurance to cover you. Now there are a couple of exceptions. For instance you are, or work for ABC cleaning company. If you submit a bill or a bill is submitted on your behalf to garner payment, then it is the bill generators responsability to cover you with Workmans Comp Insurance. If the employer informes you he does and will not carry this type of insurace, and you agree and sign off and are compensated for said lack of coverage, then your "employer" need not carry Workmans Comp Insurance on you. If you want complete details of who and what coverages need to be carried go to Google.com and search Workmans Comp rules & regulations for YOUR STATE or Country, as all states/countries vary a small amount.
