The time period is now open for public comment on the proposed mediation regulations. At the business meeting of the Commissioners last week, the South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Commission (SCWCC) favorably reported out the proposed mediation regulations for practice before the Commission. You can learn more about the proposed regulations by reading our past blog posts on the subject, and here is the entire proposal from the SCWCC.
A public hearing will be held at the Commission on May 22, 2012 regarding adoption of the regulations. The regulations will likely be submitted to the General Assembly on May 29, 2012.
Virginia Crocker, the Director of the Judicial Department at the Commission, tells me she is hopeful the regulations will have an implementation date of July 1, 2012.
On your mark, get set. . . mediate!
