  • compensation check

    From Nebraska...receiving workman's comp because of carpal tunnel. My compensation is figured by averaging the last 6 weeks of pay before the original claim (June 2004)...not the hourly salary...then taking 66.67% of this weekly average for the weekly comp check. There have been two raises since the original claim but these raises were not considered. I did work without WC 4 months after the first claim was closed but the condition returned. Is this the correct way to figure the comp checks?

    Second question:

    Being released to go back to work with "no typing" restriction and lifting restriction of 1 to 10 pounds I am applying for every job available at the company. Am I responsible for finding a job that will allow my restrictions? Does the company "have" to find me a job? What happens if my hands never return to normal...always pain and stiff?
