INFORMATION FOR NOTICE OF WORKERS’ COMPENSATION DENIAL (LIBC-496) DEADLINE:

 21 days – Form must be filed within 21 days after the Employer is notified of work injury

INJURY INFORMATION  When denying a claim, a broad denial is suggested.  Use same words for all three questions. Such as the following:  Part of body injured: ANY AND ALL  Nature of injury: ANY AND ALL  Accident/injury description narrative: ANY AND ALL

NOTICE

 In the middle of the form is a new section referred to as “Notice”, not to be confused with the “Date of Notice” at the top left of the form, which is the date you are issuing this form.  For “Notice”, the form allows you to use any of the following dates, which may be different; o the date that the Employer  received notice  knew of alleged injury or  date of employee’s claimed disability  Remember whatever date you use make sure that it is within 21 days of the date you are executing the form.

WHICH BOX SHOULD I CHECK?  Box #1. We strongly recommend that you only select Box #1 in every case, since it is the only true denial, as all the other boxes are an admission of some sort.  If you “disregard” the last recommendation (LOL!) and want to select any of the Boxes #2-6, note you are admitting that a work injury occurred, thus be as specific as possible. Such as the following:  body parts affected: LEFT WRIST FRACTURE  type of injury: LEFT WRIST FRACTURE  description of injury: LEFT WRIST FRACTURE

These instructions may change without notice based upon new case law, amendments to the Act, WC Rules, and/or BWC Regulations.

The payment of temporary compensation does not mean that your employer assumed responsibility for your injury. Your employer and you retain all rights, defenses and obligations with regard to the claim.

IF YOU BELIEVE YOU SUFFERED A WORK-RELATED INJURY, YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO FILE A CLAIM PETITION WITH THE WORKERS' COMPENSATION OFFICE OF ADJUDICATION IN ORDER TO PROTECT YOUR FUTURE RIGHTS.

You have three years from the date of injury or discovery of your condition to file a Claim Petition for benefits.

INFORMATION FOR STATEMENT OF WAGES (LIBC-494C) INFORMATION TO INCLUDE:  Wages, which include:  Earnings  Tips  Gratuities  weekly board/lodging  commissions  incentive  vacation pay TIME FRAME:  The Average Weekly Wage (AWW) is computed as of the DATE OF THE INJURY (DOI), not the date of disability  The time frame to calculate the AWW is the 12 months of wages prior to the DOI

FIXED WAGES: 

Wages fixed by the month  Multiply monthly wages by 12 and then divide by 52;  Then add weekly board/lodging, gratuities/tips, bonuses, incentive, and vacation pay to arrive at AWW.

Wages fixed by the year  Divide yearly wages by 52 and then add weekly board/lodging, gratuities/tips, bonuses, incentive, and vacation pay to arrive at AWW.

NON-FIXED WAGES:  Question #1: Was Claimant employed for 4 consecutive 13 calendar week periods preceding the injury? If Yes, go to section A.

If No, go to Question #2. Section A:

Take the average of each 13 calendar week period by taking the gross wages earned during that period and dividing by 13; Drop the period with the least earned income; Add averages of the 3 highest periods, then; Divide by 3 to arrive at AWW

Example: Claimant’s pre-injury earnings Q1: $8,000 Q2: $9,000 Q3: $7,800 Q4: $9,300 Step 1: Throw out lowest 13 calendar week period, which is Q3 in above example. Step 2: Average other 3 calendar week periods by dividing each by 13. Q1: $8,000 / 13 = $615.38 Q2: $9,000 / 13 = $692.31 Q4: $9,300 / 13 = $715.38 Step 3: Add averages ($615.38 + $692.31 + $715.38 = $2,023.07) Step 4: Divide total by 3 to arrive at average weekly wage ($2,023.07 / 3 = $674.36) 

Question #2: Was Claimant employed for any consecutive 13 calendar week periods? If Yes, go to section B.

If No, go to Question #3.

LEGAL DISCLAIMER:

These instructions may change without notice based upon new case law, amendments to the Act, WC Rules, and/or BWC Regulations.

1-15


Section B:

Take the average of each 13 calendar week period by taking the gross wages earned during that period and dividing by 13; Add averages of the periods worked, then;

Divide by the number of complete periods to arrive at AWW. Example: Assume that Claimant had only worked for Q1 and Q2 prior to the DOI. Earnings: Q1: $8,000 Q2: $9,000 Q3: 0.00 Q4: 0.00 Step 1: Add average weekly rate for each completed period. (Q1 $615.38 + Q2 $692.31 = $1,307.69). Step 2: Divide by the number of completed periods to arrive at AWW. ($1,307.69 / 2 = $653.85) 

Question #3: Was Claimant employed for less than 13 calendar weeks prior to the injury? If Yes, go to section C.

If No, go back to Question #2. Section C:

AWW shall be the hourly wage rate multiplied by the number of hours Claimant was expected to work.

Problem: What are the Expected Hours? Most Judges will simply calculate the total earnings and divide by the hours worked to arrive at the AWW, even if the Claimant did not work a complete 13 weeks prior to the DOI. For examples: Claimant is hired with no set hours per week. Claimant worked 4 weeks prior to the DOI. Week #1 - 35 hours Week #2 - 42 hours Week #3 - 48 hours Week #4 - 40 hours  

Claimant worked 165 hours (35 + 42 + 48 + 40), over 4 weeks, (165 / 4), thus his average hours are 41.25 per week. Note: If Claimant earned time and a half for hours over 40, he is sure to argue that his AWW should include overtime earnings.

CONCURRENT EMPLOYMENT:  Concurrent employment is when Claimant is working for more than one employer.  Exclusions from concurrent employers:  volunteer firefighters  income from self-employment Calculation:  Draft two (2) separate LIBC-494C STATEMENT OF WAGES forms  Add AWW of each position job to determine the employee’s aggregate AWW.

Step 1- Complete each Statement of Wages as if Claimant was only employed by that Employer.

Step 2- On Primary Employer’s Statement of Wages (be sure to check off Primary or Concurrent Employer), use comment space in #8 to add the Primary and Concurrent Employer’s AWW together. Step 3- Calculate Claimant’s Compensation Rate based on the aggregate AWW. Example:

LEGAL DISCLAIMER:

$600.00 + $350.00 $950.00

AWW with Primary Employer AWW with Concurrent Employer aggregate AWW

INFORMATION FOR CALCULATION OF THE COMPENSATION RATE WEEKLY COMPENSATION RATE:  The Compensation Rate is based upon the Pennsylvania WORKERS' COMPENSATION RATE SCHEDULES 

Compare AWW to the SCHEDULE (page 1-21)

Generally, Claimant’s wage-loss benefits are equal to two-thirds of their weekly wage for a work-related injury.

However, there are minimum and maximum Compensation Rates, which are based on the Department of Labor and Industry's calculation of the statewide AWW.

CALCULATING THE WEEKLY COMPENSATION RATE: 

Generally- Weekly Compensation Rate is calculated by dividing the Claimant’s AWW by 2/3. For example:  DOI – 08/17/2013  AWW of $880.36 $880.36 AWW x 66.666% $586.91 Weekly Compensation Rate 

CR $586.91, which is 66 2/3% of the AWW, based upon RATE SCHEDULE below. 2013 _______________ Maximum: $917.00 01/01/13 _______________ $1,375.50 66 2/3% $687.76 _______________ $687.75 $458.50 $509.44 _______________ $509.43 or 90% Less _______________

TEMPORARY PARTIAL DISABILITY:

 How to Calculate TPD Benefits?  2/3 of the difference between Claimant’s AWW and present earnings. Example:

$880.36 AWW - $500.00 Present earnings $380.36 x 2/3 $253.57 TPD rate

INSTRUCTIONS The Statement of Wages must be clearly completed in accordance with the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act and uploaded in accordance with the provisions of the EDI Implementation guide when submitting certain EDI transactions. A copy must be sent to the injured employee. The ³average weekly wage´ is used to determine the amount of weekly compensation wage-loss bene¿ts payable under the Pennsylavania Workers’ Compensation Act. A chart is available from the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation to aid in determining the weekly compensation rate, online at www.dli.state.pa.us

CONCURRENT EMPLOYMENT If the employee had more than one employer at the time of injury, a separate Statement of Wages form must be completed for each employer. Submit these forms together. Using #8 on the Primary Employer’s form only (employer with whom the injury occurred): show the addition of the average weekly wages from all employers, show the combined average weekly wage to the right of the equal sign and show the appropriate workers’ compensation rate. Check the Primary employer box for the Primary employer and the Concurrent employer box for all other employers.

Important Notice: Section 306(a.2) of the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act provides that an insurer (employer) may request a workers’ compensation claimant, on total disability status, to attend a medical examination to determine the degree of their impairment due to the compensable injury. This examination should occur after the expiration of 104 weeks of total disability. The purpose of the examination is to determine the degree of impairment using the American Medical Association “Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment.” If this evaluation results in an impairment rating of less than 50 percent, your benefits status will change to “partial disability” which has a 500 week duration limit. The amount of wage loss compensation checks you are receiving is not affected by this change in status. If this evaluation is requested and scheduled within 60 days of the end of the 104 week period and results in a change to partial disability status, the effective date for that change is at the end of the 104 weeks. If the evaluation is initially scheduled more than 60 days after the end of the 104 weeks, any resulting change in status occurs on the date of the medical evaluation or as determined by the evaluating physician. Prior to your receiving this form, you or your attorney (if appropriate) may have been contacted regarding your agreement to the selection of an impairment rating physician. In the alternative, the Department of Labor & Industry may have been requested to assign an impairment rating physician. If you fail to attend the impairment rating evaluation, your workers’ compensation benefits may be suspended (stopped) through the decision of a Workers’ Compensation Judge.

Further, please note that you may only request review of individual providers (i.e., physician, chiropractors, etc.), and not facilities.

INFORMATION FOR EMPLOYEE ACKNOWLEDGEMENT FORMS 1. “PANEL PHYSICIANS LIST”: The DESIGNATED HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS (commonly referred to as the “Panel Physicians list”) must be posted in the workplace. a. The Employer may even give a copy to their employees every time they sign the NOTICE OF RIGHTS & DUTIES form. b. If the Employer does not have a fixed workplace, have the supervisors carry extra copies of the “Panel Physicians list” to each job location. c. On accepted cases only, Claimants are required to treat with a medical provider on the employer’s list of DESIGNATED HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS (“Panel Physicians list”) for the first 90 days after the initial visit of treatment. 2. NOTICES: Employers must now provide their employees with two separate notices, on two different pieces of paper, at the time of hire and the time of injury. (See §121.3b of the WC regulations.) a. The notices are: i. NOTICE OF RIGHTS & DUTIES and ii. WORKERS' COMPENSATION INFORMATION b. Procedure: Have the employee sign both forms and give them a copy for their file on two occasions: i. ii.

Time of hire [or now if they are already employed] and Immediately after the injury  Alternatively, as soon as possible under the circumstances of the injury. If the employee’s injuries are so severe that emergency care is required, notice of the employee’s rights and duties shall be given as soon after the occurrence of the injury as is practicable.

c. The employer’s duty to inform shall be evidenced by the employee’s written acknowledgment of having been informed of and having understood the notice of the employee’s rights and duties. d. Any failure of the employer to provide and evidence the notification relieves the employee from any duties specified in the notice, and the employer remains liable for all treatment rendered to the employee. e. However, an employee may not refuse to sign an acknowledgment to avoid duties specified in the notice.

LEGAL DISCLAIMER:

These instructions may change without notice based upon new case law, amendments to the Act, WC Rules, and/or BWC Regulations. Feel free to call one of the attorneys at Cipriani & Werner, P.C. using the phone numbers on the cover of this book to confirm that the law has not changed.

WORKERS’ COMPENSATION INFORMATION The workers’ compensation law provides wage loss and medical benefits to employees who cannot work, or who need medical care, because of a work-related injury. Benefits are required to be paid by our employer when self-insured, or through insurance provided by your employer. Your employer is required to post the name of the company responsible for paying workers’ compensation benefits at its primary place of business and at its sites of employment in a prominent and easily accessible place, including, without limitation, areas used for the treatment of injured employees or for the administration of first aid. You should report immediately any injury or work-related illness to your employer. Your benefits could be delayed or denied if you do not notify your employer immediately. If your claim is denied by your employer, you have the right to request a hearing before a workers’ compensation judge. The Bureau of Workers’ Compensation cannot provide legal advice.
