Georgia: Franchisees Generally Not Considered Employees of Franchisors

Law Effective January 1, 2017

A new law in Georgia amends certain state labor laws to provide that a franchisee—or a franchisee’s employee—generally will not be deemed to be an employee of the franchisor for any purpose. However, the amendment does not apply to the state’s workers’ compensationprovisions.

Note: As the new measure amends certain labor laws, affected employers are advised to read the law in its entirety and consult a knowledgeable employment law attorney with any questions regarding the law’s impact on workplace policies and practices.

The law is effective January 1, 2017. Click here to read the text of the law.
