Wage differential question...
#1
I have a question re: the wage differential when returning to work from TTD. I am going back light duty which means I will be classified differently and lose approx $12 hr. I read the NV statute and the 80% rule. My question is, when they say my employer has to pay me 80% of my average monthly wage, do they mean my actual monthly wage or my TTD monthly wage? Thanks for any help Smile

Temporary partial benefits are paid for the difference between the post-injury wage and the temporary total disability rate (66 2/3 percent) (up to the State maximum, of course). For example, a worker making $1,000 per month is injured and placed on light duty that only pays $500 per month. However, the TTD compensation for that injury would be $666 per month. But the worker is not entitled to TTD but TPD. Therefore, the monthly TPD compensation paid to him/her is $166 per month, which is the difference between his/her post injury wage ($500) and the TTD compensation rate ($666).

Thanks Kate. This is the statute I was looking at, which one would be used in my situation and what do they consider Substantially similar? Thanks again.

NRS 616C.475(8)(a)(2).

"Any offer of temporary, light-duty employment made by the employer must specify a position that:...
(b) Provides a gross wage that is:
(1) If the position is in the same classification of employment, equal to the gross wage the employee was earning at the time of his injury; or
(2) If the position is not in the same classification of employment, substantially similar to the gross wage the employee was earning at the time of his injury;and "...
