Who settles workers' compensation disputes?

Whether you are arguing that you are eligible for workers' compensation based on your work history or that your injury happened while working, the state agency charged with settling disputes such as these and with administering workers' compensation is the South Carolina Workers' Compensation Commission.

The Commission is governed by seven commissioners, each appointed to a six-year term by the Governor with the advice and consent of the Senate.

The commissioners are responsible for hearing and deciding contested cases, for conducting informal conferences with employers and employees, and for approving settlements and hearing appeals. A single commissioner hears the case first. The commissioner's decision may be appealed to the full Commission, and in turn to courts at various levels.
