    Default Working a Modified Schedule

    I had an appointment today with the employment doctor. I have been put back to work on a modified schedule and need to know how does this works with workerman's comp. At the present time, my first day back on the job will be Monday, March 26, 2012. I am to try and work six hours days and I will like to know if workerman's comp is responsible for the other two hours per day for as long as my schedule is modified?

    TPD/Temp Partial Disability benefits should be due when there is wage loss...not by hours in a day, but the difference in your actual earnings and your AWW/Average Weekly Wage...2/3's of the difference up to the max rate of TD/Temp Disability benefits.
