On Friday, June 15, I had the opportunity to attend the South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Educational Association’s (SCWCEA) Annual One Day Seminar. The keynote speaker was Commissioner Derrick L. Williams. Commissioner Williams discussed the history of the mediation initiative and its current status. The Regulations were submitted to the South Carolina General Assembly but were not reached on the legislative calendar before the General Assembly recessed in June. Commissioner Williams believes the Regulations will be reached early in the January 2013 legislative calendar and does not anticipate any roadblocks to adoption.
