I have a Process Builder process that 'watches' updates to 3 fields on the Case object, and on updates to any of these 3 fields, does stuff (sends a message to a AWS SQS Q).

When any of those 3 fields of interest are updated manually, the process is triggered and all is well.

However, in the case where those fields are updated via a Workflow rule (Time based workflow action), the process does not get triggered.

Now I have read that updates to formula fields do not trigger Process Builder processes, but does a similar constraint apply to fields updated via Time based workflow actions as well?

Many thanks!

Yes you need to check the checkbox which say reevaluate wf on field update on WF field update. then your process builder work without any issue.
