The main duty of the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission (VWCC) is to carry out the requirements of the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Act. The Act provides protection for employees who are injured while working or who suffer an occupational illness. The Commission makes sure that employers properly provide this protection through workers’ compensation insurance or self-insurance. The VWCC also establishes procedures for filing claims and judging claims.
The VWCC currently has three Full Commissioners who are picked by the General Assembly. These three Commissioners serve for six year terms. There is also an Executive Director who serves for a three year term. The Executive Director is also a Commissioner.
The current Executive Director, as of November, 2015, is Wesley G. Marshall. The other two Commissioners are R. Ferrell Newman and Roger L. Williams.
