An Item of Slightly Greater Interest

The DWC announced on June 21 that interest on benefits owed under the Texas Labor Code will now be at the rate of 8.57%, up infinitesimally from the prior rate of 8.55%.  The new rate went into effect on July 1, 2024.  So, if you spent your Canada Day watching Letterkenny with a six-pack of Molson instead of obsessively checking interest rates on past due workers’ compensation benefits, now you know.
