Ohio WC Terms: Average Weekly Wage (AWW)

Average Weekly Wage (AWW)

R.C. 4123.61 provides that the average weekly wage (AWW) forms the basis of workers' compensation payments, except for the first twelve weeks of temporary total. The usual method of calculating the average weekly wage is by dividing the injured worker's total earnings for the year before the injury by 52 weeks. However, if special circumstances exist the average weekly wage may be recalculated.
