How is an injured workers’ average weekly wage (AWW) determined?

AWW is calculated using your earnings for the 52 weeks prior to the injury and reportable on a Federal W-2 form. If an employee has not been employed for 52 weeks, the employer may base the AWW on a similarly situated employee. AWW is subject to the State maximum at the time of injury.

Earnings during last 52 weeks ÷ 52 weeks = AWW
