    Default Employer Paying Wages Not Work Comp

    My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: MO
    Workmans comp was notified and have been active with my case since day one. My employer notified me he would be paying my weekly wages not the insurance because their payments would be lower. He is paying me for 40 hours a week at my regular rate. Is this common? Why do that?

    Why is that "lower" than what your workers' comp benefit would be?
    The North Carolina Court of Appeals has held that "In contested Workers' Compensation cases today, access to competent legal counsel is a virtual necessity." Church v. Baxter Travenol Labs, Inc., and American Motorists Insurance Company, 104 N.C. App. 411, 416 (1991).

    I think he means comp would pay less than his full wage - he said "My employer notified me he would be paying my weekly wages not the insurance because their payments would be lower."

    Guess I misread it.
