Ga. Comp. R. & Regs. R. 570-9-.06 - Off-Duty Employer Responsibilities

(a) The Department will not be responsible for a sworn member's actions if the sworn member is acting in the scope of employment for the outside employer. Except as provided in this rule, state benefits and protection, including liability insurance coverage and workers compensation benefits for related injuries and disability, will not apply while the sworn member is performing off-duty police employment.
(b) If such employment is by another state department, that agency, rather than the Department of Public Safety, will be responsible for such coverage.
(c) If use of the department vehicle has been approved for use in off-duty police employment in accordance with O.C.G.A. § 35-2-15, the sworn member is deemed to be acting within the scope of his/her official duties and employment and shall be afforded liability coverage for claims arising out of such approved use of the vehicle.
(2) Requests for employment by another state agency shall be in writing and shall conform to the requirements for Off-Duty Police Employment. In addition to the requirement stated in this policy, a release shall be provided by the sworn member which states:
(a) In the event that the hours worked for the Department and another state agency result in the sworn member being eligible for overtime, the overtime shall be the responsibility of the other agency up to the maximum hours worked by the other agency, and
(b) In the event the sworn member requests or becomes entitled to overtime pay as a result of working outside the Department for another agency, the outside employer or other state agency shall bear the expense or liability and must agree to such in writing.
