FULL-TIME : $10.00 X 40 HRS = $400.00 X 2/3RDS = $226.67

NOTE: To set a claim at 100% the injured employee must sign a statement that states he/she limited themselves to only one job at the time of the injury. If the employee was 15 years of age or younger at the time of the injury the claim can be automatically set at 100% without a signed statement, provided they did not have any other job at the time of the injury. If there is a recorded statement taken from the injured employee, it can be asked at that time if they limited themselves to only the one job and that can be used in place of a signed statement.

An injured employee cannot receive more than their non-restricting peers when setting the wage and temporary total disability rate.

Usually the hours to look for are 16 hours per week, if they are part of a regularly scheduled class of part-time employees and 27 hours per week if they are not.
