Work injury and restrictions question.
I am not sure I understand the question, but I will try to answer. When you are injured, your average weekly wage (AWW) is calculated based upon your earnings from the time of injury employer over the prior 52 weeks and would also be increased to include any concurrent employers you may have at the time of the injury. This is true whether you were a full time or part time employee. Your compensation rate is a percentage of the AWW. There is a maximum compensation rate which you can not receive more than regardless of your AWW, and depending on your AWW the percentage may be 2/3 or 9/10 for lower wage earners.

If you are not working at all as a result of your injury, you would be entitled to your full compensation rate. If you are able to return to work part time earning less than you were when you were injured you are entitled to a partial disability benefit derived by subtracting your actual earnings from your AWW and multiplying the difference by 2/3.
