What Happens if an Employee Returns to work and Earns Less Wages than Before an Injury?

What happens if the employee returns to work earning less wages than before the injury?

The employee may be entitled to receive a partial disability check if the employee returns to work and the pay received for this work is not as much as the average weekly wage earned before the injury. The amount of this partial disability check will be two thirds of the difference between the average weekly wage the employee made before the injury and the weekly wage earned after the return to work. You normally must submit your pay stubs or have your employer submit pay information to the insurance company in order for you to receive your weekly checks on time.

I’m extremely satisfied. I could call or email and I would always get a quick reply. My attorney was always ready to answer any questions I had. Attorney Hummel was there for me at a time when I didn’t know where to turn. He and his assistant always listened and gave me comfort through my difficult time. I highly recommend Daggett Shuler.
