Am I covered under the SC Workers’ Compensation Act?
The vast majority of employees are covered under SC Workers’ Compensation Act. If your employer has 4 or more employees, you will be covered. Your employer may classify you as an independent contractor that is not covered. However, you might be a statutory employee entitled to benefits based on the amount of control your employer has over your work schedule as well as several other factors. You should speak to an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer to see if you are covered under the act.
