Welcome to the Division of Professional and Occupational Licensing Boards (POL). POL has two offices that handle specific responsibilities for the Boards:

South Carolina and federal laws are the source of various rights employers and employees have in their employer/employee relationships. LLR is one of several state and federal agencies, which administers the laws assuring these rights. Occupational safety, payment of wages, child labor, migrant labor and mediation of disputes between unions and businesses all fall under LLR. Elevators and amusement rides also are regulated to assure the public's safety. Learn more about Labor Programs
LLR is proud to bring E-Government services to the licensees of South Carolina. Our goal is to make your experience easier and more convenient while preserving the privacy of personal information.
