TPD Wages Sample #4

EMPLOYEE WHO OBTAINS A NEW JOB WITH A NEW EMPLOYER AFTER THE INJURY

Weekly wage at time of injury is from your previous full time or part-time job

Hours worked and the hourly wage equal the amount earned from the new employer

TTD Rate on TPD Worksheet: $160.00

If the injured employee obtains a job after the date of injury with a different employer the insurance carrier may ask the injured employee each week for the taxable earnings from the other employer. This will determine if the employee is earning more on the second job, then on the job they were injured at. If the injured employee obtains a job after the injury, TPD will be due instead of TTD.

Completing the "TPD worksheet" (WKC-7359)

  1. Week ending is the Sunday date following the week of TPD.
  2. Hours the injured worked.
  3. Hourly rate the employee was earning for the week of TPD.
  4. Earned -- The injured employee obtains a job after the injury, the wage earned is from the other employer and the injured employee needs to report their taxable earnings to the insurance carrier, so the carrier can determine what TPD is due for each week the employee is on temporary restrictions.
  5. Weekly wage at time of injury -- This is the actual wages for employees that have had their TTD wage expanded or if the employee was full-time at the time of the injury it is the TTD wage.
  6. Wage loss -- Subtract the amount earned from the wage at the time of the injury.
  7. % -- divide the wage loss by the wage at the time of the injury.
  8. TTD rate -- This is the same rate that the temporary total disability was paid at. It does not lower to 2/3rd's of the actual wage.  (Use the escalated rate if there is a renewed period of disability more than 2 years after the date of injury.)
  9. TPD rate -- Multiply the TTD rate by the % of wage loss.
