NOTE: If you have questions about a specific workers’ compensation claim or you need general workers’ compensation information please call the Workers’ Compensation Division of the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development at 1-800-332-2667 (or 615-532-4812) or check its website:  http://www.tn.gov/labor-wfd/wcomp.shtml

The Advisory Council on Workers' Compensation is not a division of the Department of Labor and Workforce Development. The Advisory Council DOES NOT PROVIDE ADVICE to employees, employers, insurers or consumers.

The Advisory Council on Workers' Compensation exists to provide information, research and recommendations concerning workers' compensation issues to the Tennessee General Assembly, the Department of Commerce and Insurance and the Department of Labor and Workforce Development.

In general, the Advisory Council is authorized to monitor the performance of the workers' compensation system in the implementation of legislative directives, to make recommendations relating to the adoption of rules and legislation; and to make recommendations regarding the method and form of statistical collections. The Advisory Council also reviews the annual advisory prospective loss cost filing by the National Council on Compensation Insurance and provides comment and recommendation concerning the filing to the Commissioner of Commerce and Insurance. In addition, at the request of the General Assembly, the Advisory Council annually reviews and provides comments and recommendations on proposed workers' compensation legislation.

The Advisory Council on Workers' Compensation was initially created by the General Assembly in 1992. The Workers' Compensation Reform Act of 1996 terminated the existing Advisory Council and created a new Advisory Council on Workers' Compensation. The current Advisory Council is comprised of the State Treasurer who serves as Chair, three (3) voting members who represent employees; three (3) voting members who represent employers; ten (10) nonvoting members and four (4) ex officio members. The Chair may vote only on matters related to the administration of the Advisory Council or the Council's research; the chair is not permitted to vote on any matter which constitutes the making of a policy recommendation to the Governor or to the General Assembly.

If you have specific questions about the Advisory Council, please contact us.
