CA law says- Disability Benefits Provided:
Payments are made for temporary total disability (TTD) and temporary partial disability (TPD) in an amount determined by a percentage of the worker's wage, subject to weekly maximum and minimum payment amounts. For most workers, payments may continue for up to two years.
Now....three years after the injury I finally got surgery and have not worked in almost a month. During the three years after my injury I finished college and left my old part time employment. I now make 4 times a month what I did then. While I am off work, do they pay me 2/3 of my old salary from 3 yrs ago or 2/3 of my present one?????
The amount offered by my old employer is going to force me to back to work in order to pay my monthly bills. I am on crutches and have an infected healing wound in the back of my leg from the cast, whereas if my benefits are based on current salary I could stay home for a couple of weeks and get well/return to work walking.
What is the law, does anyone know?
