Changes in the labor force

Workers in Georgia and around the country are getting older, and this will lead to significant changes in the workers' compensation industry. This will also have an effect on workplace safety issues.

According to a 2017 Bureau of Labor Statistics report, employees who are 65 years or older are remaining in the workforce longer and are expected to be the fastest growing labor group through 2024. This is while workers between the ages of 25 and 54 are predicted to grow at a much slower pace, primarily due to fewer births and people remaining on the job longer.

The statistics released by the BLS also indicate that Latinos will make up a substantial portion of the workforce. In 2011, almost 23 million Latino men and women were on the job, making up 15 percent of the workforce. They are expected to make up 19 percent of the workforce by 2020.

Latino and millennial workers will find these changes difficult as they will be counted on to replace the biggest group of workers in the current workforce. Having experienced workers replaced by people with few skills will also present obstacles to employers with regard to training. It has been suggested that there will be a rise in first-year workplace accidents.

An attorney who has experience in worker's compensation law may assist workers injured in workplace accidents with obtaining the financial benefits to which they may be entitled. This may include guiding them through the filing process, helping to ensure that the claim contains all required documentation and is submitted within the time period required by law.
