History of the South Carolina Workers' Compensation Commission

The South Carolina Workers' Compensation Commission was created on September 1, 1935 in response to the rising number of industrial accidents and resulting negligence litigation plaguing both employees and employers. The South Carolina Workers' Compensation Act sought to relieve employers from burdensome litigation in exchange for an expedited process limiting their liability to payment for medical bills and lost wages while simultaneously providing a reliable framework for employees to seek compensation for work-related injuries without regard to an employer's negligence.
