Re: No Pay
They have 30 days to establish your wage, they pay every two weeks so give it 44 days to receive the first check
I was injured in July of this year. I have been off work since then and I am still off work. I have not received wage replacement from WC.
After that, you should receive a check every two weeks, call the adjuster and see what's going on.
At the first sign of problems, have no further contact and hire an attorney - do not argue with the adjuster or the employer.
See pg.5 in the below link to a downloadable file.
Temporary Disability - Accepting or Denying a Claim
Within 21 days of notification from the ICA that a claim has been properly filed for workers’ compensation benefits, the first payment of compensable temporary total disability compensation shall be processed. This includes issuing the initial Notice of Claim Status and Wage Calculation (108). If wage information is not available, a temporary wage will be set. Actual wage must be established within 30 days of the initial Wage Calculation (108).
Subsequent payments will be made every 14 calendar days during the period of temporary total disability, upon confirmation of the ongoing disability from the attending physician. A phone call should be made to the injured worker to also confirm continued time loss.
If the injured work lost less than 14 calendar days, the first 7 days are not compensated. These uncompensated 7 days shall be paid, if the injured worker subsequently loses additional time from work totaling 14 day and the first 7 days were consecutive calendar days
