Workers’ Compensation – Temporary Partial Disability Benefits – Average Weekly Wage – Second Job – First ImpressionTunell v. Resource MFG If an employee is holding down two jobs and is injured at the first job, his “average weekly wage” does not include wages from his second job even if the injury prevents him from returning to either job. Likewise, if an injury prevents the employee from returning to his first job, but he is still able to work at his second job, the calculation of his temporary partial disability benefits does not take into consideration his wages from the second job, unless the second job has been enlarged or used as a substitute for the loss of earnings from the first job.
