    Default Benefits on Workers Comp How Much Does One Get Per Day

    My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: California
    I was making $18.00 an hour 8 hours per day for 5 days a week. So 8hrs by $18.00 an hour = $144.00 per day. So on workers comp how much that would that be? Please if you can also direct me to what Labor Code that would be even better Thks.

    Also does one get paid for holidays if they fall during a weekend?

    workers comp disability is pays 2/3 of your average weekly wage (net pay).
    there is a maximum rate based on your date of injury.
    the maximums are listed here
    http://www.dir.ca.gov/dwc/WorkersCom...onBenefits.htm

    it's a weekly rate (7 day calendar week)--every day you are disabled you are entitled to 1/7 of your weekly rate.
    to find out more about Temporary Disability see factsheet C

    the labor code that sets the earnings calculation is here

    They don't calculate or pay by the day, they pay by the week.
    Take your weekly gross wage, divide by how many days you work and that would be how much a day.

    SH gave you the labor code, and basis for TTD benefits...
    it's a weekly rate (7 day calendar week)--every day you are disabled you are entitled to 1/7 of your weekly rate.

    In your case, 40 hrs X $18 = $720/week AWW or Average Weekly wage. (if that calcuation is correct) X 66.666% = $475/week. Tax free benefits. If you are disabled one day...$68

    you were given all the information.
    if you aren't going to use it why did you ask for it?
    this site is not your personal calculator

    {(18 x 5 x 8 x 2)/3}/7 = $68.57 (maybe)
