When an employer reduces the injured employee's hours or pay because of her workers’ compensation accident, the employer may be required to pay a portion of the difference between the average weekly wage before the accident and the average weekly wage after the accident. The difference in these wages would be taken at a 2/3 rate of pay. This is called temporary partial disability. These benefits are calculated on a weekly basis.
In many situations, the employer will not voluntarily commence these benefits to the injured worker. It is the injured worker’s responsibility to raise this issue with his or her employer.
The attorneys at the Ramos Law Firm understand this concept and have prosecuted many of these cases resulting in causal results for its clients. If you’ve been injured on the job and you are now making less money because of your work injury, please contact Bryan Ramos at 404-355-3431.
