North Carolina Workers Compensation Program History
The State Government Workers' Compensation Program (SGWCP) was established in 1985 and is administered in the Office of State Personnel. The purpose of the program is to ensure that all eligible employees who experience a work related injury or illness receive appropriate medical care and equitable benefits as provided under the Workers' Compensation Act and the State Personnel Policy.
The State is a self-insured employer, which means that agencies do not purchase coverage for workers' compensation, but pay expenditures as they occur. The State has contracted with a Third Party Administrator (TPA) to handle the workers' compensation claims of most employees. The TPA is responsible for all compensation and medical bill payments through a workers' compensation fund established by State agencies and universities and administered by the Office of the State Controller, in cooperation with the Office of State Personnel.

WHAT IS NEW
The North Carolina General Assembly recently passed significant changes to NC workers' (workmans) compensation law. .
The Legislature passed a new section 97-12.1, entitled "Willful misrepresentation in applying for employment." This section provides that compensation, including weekly payments as well as medical benefits, are not allowed if the employer proves that the employee "knowingly and willfully" lied about his physical condition, the employer relied on the employee's lie in offering the employee a job, and there is a relationship between the lie and the injury or occupational disease.
This only applies to injuries that arise after the date of the bill.
