Ever Heard of the South Carolina Workers' Compensation Commission's Advisory Committee?


South Carolina's Workers' Compensation Act provides for an Advisory Committee whose purpose it is to monitor the effectiveness of existing laws and annually make recommendations to the General Assembly on ways to improve those laws. The Committee is often called the "Governor's Committee" because the five members are appointed by the governor, but in reality, the Committee does not speak for the governor. It reports to the General Assembly. The statute requires the members represent various interests in the compensation industry, so the Committee has input from five factions of the system: the defense bar; the claimant's bar; labor; management; and the general public.
