All employees should be aware of their responsibilities under South Carolina
workers' compensation law. See the SAF Employee Handbook for more information. Employees must notify
their employer immediately when an on-the-job injury occurs. Failure to notify the employer within
ninety (90) days after an accident may deprive them of their right to benefits. Injured employees
cannot receive benefits until the employer files a Workers Compensation - First Report of Injury or
Illness (ACORD 4 Form / WCC Form 12-A) with the State Accident Fund.
