Cancellation of Insurance
The South Carolina Workers' Compensation Commission (SCWCC) has implemented a system to notify a general contractor via email if a sub-contractor appears to have failed to maintain Workers' Compensation Insurance. This system has been developed in cooperation with the South Carolina Home Builders Association (SCHBA).
The SCWCC Lapse in Insurance Notification User Guide includes instructions on how to register for this notification service. View the user manual (PDF). Obtain a report of policies you have registered for. In addition, this division monitors and maintains the Commission’s coverage/fine system to ensure correct and prompt filing of coverage documents and the collection of fines.
South Carolina law requires insurance carriers to file policy information with its legal agent, National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI), within thirty days of the policy’s effective date. Carriers are required to provide the Employers’ Federal Identification Number (FEIN) on all policies. Insurance carriers who do not meet these requirements are subject to fines in accordance with Section 42-19-50 and Regulation 67-405C. You may contact our Coverage Department at email@example.com if you are unsure of the carrier’s contact information.
The Compliance Division is the investigation and enforcement arm of the SC Workers’ Compensation Commission. When a claim is filed for which there is no apparent insurance coverage, the case is assigned to an investigator to determine who should be the responsible party. The division prosecutes employers who fail to maintain workers’ compensation coverage.
All employers operating under the South Carolina Workers' Compensation Act (Act), are required to post publicly and keep posted in their place of business an Employer's Notice of Being Subject to the Act (R67-301 A). Below is a link to the Notice. Employers can download the Notice and complete the workers' compensation insurance carrier's name, address, and phone number.
