The South Carolina General Assembly approved the Mediation Regulations (R 4286) on May 13, 2013. The regulations will become effective once they are published in the South Carolina State Register, most likely on June 28, 2013.
Thereafter, cases subject to mediation must be mediated prior to a hearing being set.
These claims include, but are not limited to: permanent and total disability; Third-party lien issues; occupational diseases; contested death claims; mental/mental injuries; and cases with concurrent jurisdiction under the South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Act and the Federal Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act.
