Wage Calculation Workshop 2019

WSIA Office, Olympia Washington (info below)

8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Calculating an injured worker's wages in Washington's unique and complex system can be, in the recent words of a Labor & Industries internal auditor, "like splitting the atom." 

But you shouldn't have to be a nuclear scientist to get it right.  

An important training in our Industrial Insurance University's comprehensive, goal-oriented workers' compensation curriculum, this full day event takes a deep dive into calculations for time loss, loss of earning power benefits as well as permanent partial disability awards.   This event will be helpful to employers, claims managers and third party administrators to ensure that benefits are being issued correctly.  The course will cover:

  • Varying work patterns and correct time loss calculations for the many scenarios encountered in the Washington work force
  • Scenarios when loss of earning power benefits are owed and how to calculate benefits correctly
  • Permanent partial disability awards, from interpreting medical reports to determining the correct schedule of benefits and awards due the worker
