In the state of South Carolina, job injury claims are decided by the Workers' Compensation Commission based in Columbia. The commission is made up of seven members who are chosen by the state governor and approved by the state Senate. Each commissioner serves a six-year term. One commissioner, chosen by the governor, also serves as chairman for two years. If a disagreement regarding workers' compensation comes up between an employer and employee in the state of South Carolina, this dispute initially goes to a hearing in front of a single commissioner.
