You advised us that you are paying workers compensation benefits at 100% of the employe's actual wage. This is correct if at the time of the injury the employe restricted his or her availability to part-time work and was not employed elsewhere.
However, you did not include the required self-restriction statement from the employe. Please send us a self-restriction statement immediately.
If we do not receive a reply within 30 days, we will assume that the employe did not self-restrict and we will increase the weekly rate to either two-thirds of the wages for 24 hours of work (if the employe was part of a class at the time of injury) or two-thirds of the wages for full-time work (usually 40 hours).
