My question is as follows.........
How are work comp payments computed while working "light duty"? Kansas maximum payment is $545.00 per week. If an injured worker returns to work under light duty their company paid wage is paid at 2/3 of the normal rate of pay. If the injured worker works 10 hours a week, 20 hours a week, etc. how does work comp determine what the worker's weekly portion of work comp pay would be?
In the past the injured worker did work approximately 20 hours a week and still received the full $545.00 each week but when the injured worker performed more than 20 hours per week of work while on light duty the work comp payments dropped to approximately $389.00 per week.
How is the work comp payment portion figured? An example of this computation would be very much appreciated!!!
