Compensation & Benefits

Compensation laws in Georgia

The official minimum wage in Georgia has not been updated for decades and is not actually followed in practice, so employers should negotiate individual compensation on a case-by-case basis.

Benefit management in Georgia

It is common for employers in Georgia to offer benefits packages to their workers. However, establishing a benefits system in Georgia can be complicated, especially if you are unfamiliar with the country’s unique set of labor laws and administrative procedures.

Horizons can help you bypass this complicated part of your Georgia expansion by offering benefit system outsourcing that can save you time and money. Our experts will advise you on the best course of action and take care of your benefit setup and management, helping you focus on the rest of your expansion.

A Georgia PEO and a Georgia EOR are two types of companies which specialize in providing human resources services to businesses in Georgia.

The main difference between a Georgia PEO and an Australia EOR is in the scope of their services.

Georgia PEOs provide a full range of HR services, including payroll, benefits administration, and employee recruiting—all under one roof as a co-employer. Engaging a Georgia PEO is essentially outsourcing your HR duties in Australia.

Georgia EORs actually take over as the legal employer of your employees based abroad. Georgia EORs become responsible for labor compliance for your employees in Georgia.

At Horizons, we offer both PEO and EOR services in Georgia. Get in touch now and let us know what service you are seeking.

A PEO in Georgia can feasibly hire both local and foreign nationals to work in Georgia.

However, the ability of Horizons to sponsor your foreign national employee in Georgia may be limited due to visa quotas practiced in many countries.

Contact us with your requirements and our Global Mobility team with review the case and get back to you within 2 business days.

In most cases, Horizons’ Georgia PEO can hire & onboard your employee within 12 hours. The actual start date of the employee will depend on their notice period obligation to their previous employer as well as any relevant hiring rules in Georgia.

It is possible to get a work visa in Georgia. Horizons’ Global Mobility team is a dedicated team of work visa experts. They assess the details of each case to determine feasibility and costs before Horizons applies for the work visa on behalf of your employee. If the Global Mobility team determines that your case is feasible, the process is smooth and transparent. Visa spots in Georgia are limited, however—get started today to secure your employees’ visa spot.
