[COLUMBIA, S.C. December 5, 2012] – Governor Nikki Haley has appointed Collins & Lacy attorney Aisha Taylor to the South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Commission.
Aisha joined Collins & Lacy in 2007 practicing in workers’ compensation defense and employment law. Aisha regularly appears before the S.C. Workers’ Compensation Commission and the S.C. Department of Employment and Workforce on both hearing and appellate matters. She has developed particular experience in the defense of retaliatory discharge claims arising out of workers’ compensation and discrimination cases.
“I believe Aisha’s knowledge of both employment and workers’ compensation law will translate very nicely and provide additional depth to her work on behalf of the Commission,” said Collins & Lacy Managing Partner Ellen Adams.
The South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Commission is comprised of seven commissioners appointed by the Governor with the advice and consent of the Senate. Commissioners serve terms of six years each. Aisha’s appointment is subject to the approval of the Senate.
”For years, Collins & Lacy clients have benefited from Aisha’s sense of fairness with regard to the law and her sense of duty with regard to her work. It’s a great privilege to have one of our own move forward to serve the citizens of South Carolina in the years to come,” said Adams.
