Maryland: Commission focuses on average weekly wage amendments
The rule states that the AWW must be adjudicated at the first hearing before the commission. And if the commission finds that an inaccurate weekly wage resulted in an overpayment or underpayment of benefits, it can order a credit against future permanent disability benefits, the payment of additional compensation, or any other relief the commission determines is appropriate. The commission planned to consider final action on the proposal on Sept. 13. For more information, visit www.wcc.state.md.us/Adjud_Claims/Reg_Changes.html#MFG.
