Your lawyer is correct, because the judgment is at the discretion of the law judge nothing is definite - it could go either way.
In Georgia, these types of cases are decided on a case by case basis.
In order for both employer to be used in calculating your AWW, the two job duties must be concurrent and similar.
This means that the employee’s duties must be similar, not necessarily that the employers must be similar.
The administrative law judge determines whether the injured worker was engaged in “concurrent similar employment” at the time of the work-related injury.
