A Review of the South Carolina Workers' Compensation Commission
REPORT (PDF) SUMMARY (PDF)
We reviewed the Commission’s process for handling informal conferences, efforts to identify uninsured employers, efforts to refer claimants to obtain vocational rehabilitation services, and compliance with state laws regarding contested and appealed cases. We did not examine the amount attorneys may charge claimants in South Carolina as compared to other states. Also, we did not compare the method of determining disability in this state, including the use of American Medical Association impairment ratings, to those in other states.
