Calculating earnings basis for concurrent jobs
An injured worker contacted the Commission after receiving no response to letters sent to the claims adjudicator about the calculation of her earnings basis. The worker had two jobs at the time of the accident, one with a Schedule 2 employer who paid her benefits. Earnings from the second employer were not included in the calculation.
The Commission spoke to the claims adjudicator about the WSIB policy on concurrent employment. The claims adjudicator contacted the two employers and reviewed the status with the worker by phone and letter. She agreed to recalculate the earnings basis after she received all the earnings information.
