injured on my part time job and now i lost my fulltime job because of the injury..
here is what Georgia comp law and case law  says about the issue:

"When an employee works for two separate and distinct employers prior to work related injury with one employer, an employee’s average weekly wage may be calculated to include both wages from both employers if the work performed by the employee for the employer is determined to be “concurrent similar” employment."

...O.C.G.A. §34-9-260(1)

"In order for the “concurrent similar” employment doctrine to be applicable, the employee is required to prove not necessarily that both jobs were exactly identical but that both jobs were sufficiently similar in nature and character and concurrent in time."

its difficult in these situations for the law to be fair to both the employer paying the benefits and employee receiving them.
depending on the evidence it may require litigation to adjust your temporary disability benefits.
