Atlanta, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/09/2019 -- As one of the leading work injury lawyers in Atlanta, The Law Offices of Darwin F. Johnson are experts when it comes to the requirements and responsibilities of worker's compensation law. Although the laws in each state may vary slightly, protection for both workers and employees is essentially the same. The workers' comp experts are now proud to dispel common workers' compensation myths to give clarity to those seeking this service.

Some people think that only large businesses need to purchase workers compensation insurance. In fact, in most cases, all employers with five or more employees are legally required to have a compensation policy. An exception to this law is the construction industry. Construction industry employers will need insurance for any workers on their payroll.

Some companies believe that part-time employees don't count towards employee requirements. However, all employees on payroll are counted towards the total number for a business. This includes all full and part-time workers.

The experts at The Law Offices of Darwin F. Johnson also urge businesses to remember that family members always count as employees. Therefore, a company with four employees that has a family member working as an accountant would need to purchase a workers' compensation policy. There is no way of getting around this — it's the law.

Another factor that is often overlooked is that employees that are located out of state are still employed. The geographic area in which employees physically reside makes no difference to the law. All businesses in any given state must adhere to all workers compensation laws.
