South Carolina employers are required by law to post official labor law notices in the workplace.

What changed on the Unemployment Insurance posting?
- Added – The web address of the MyBenefits online claim filing portal, accessed through the South Carolina Department of Employment and Workforce (DEW) website, is provided on the revised UI workplace posting. The DEW oversees the state’s UI program. Initial claims for UI benefits must be filed online through the web portal. The initial claim is used by the DEW to determine if applicant’s circumstances meet the eligibility requirements of the UI program. Filing a claim is the only way for eligibility to be determined.
- Added – An employee who loses his/her job due to domestic violence may be eligible to receive UI benefits. (SC Code of Laws Ann. 41-35-125)
- Updated – The current telephone number of the South Carolina Department of Employment and Workforce is also provided.
