Workers’ Compensation – Average Weekly Wage – Promotion & Raise – Fifth Method (access required)

The Industrial Commission rejects defendants’ contention that plaintiff’s average weekly wage should be determined based on the wages she received during the 52 weeks prior to her injury. Plaintiff’s salary was her average weekly wage.
