When an employee moves for legitimate reasons, but labor market research cannot be performed in the new hub community, the community at the time of injury should be used. Here, because the appointed counselor could not perform labor market research in the town in Mexico where claimant moved, the trial court erred in finding the hub for determining loss of earning capacity (LOEC) was Mexico. The Court also held that in a modification action to terminate a running TTD award, the employer’s burden of proving a decrease in incapacity was satisfied by showing the claimant reached MMI. The burden of proving entitlement to permanency remained with claimant.
