Texas Workers’ Compensation benefits are based upon the injured workers’ Average Weekly Wage.  The Average Weekly Wage includes wages from other employers.

Appeals Panel Decision 151496-s dealt with a case where the injured worker failed to provide the information regarding his additional wages.  the carrier argued that the injured worker failed to provide his additional wages in a timely manner.

The Appeals Panel held that there is no deadline to file the DWC-3ME.  The insurance carrier is required to pay benefits retroactively to include all the wages.
