The best, most accurate way to establish wage is by using the employee’s annual salary.
When submitting the wage information, use exactly one year prior to the injury.
Example: If the date of injury is 08/17/2013, you will submit earnings from 08/17/2012 through 08/16/2013.
Since the employee did not work a full day when he/she was injured, the date of injury is not used.
If the employee has been employed for less than one year, but they have an annual salary contract, submit this information.
If the employee has been employed less than one year, and is an hourly employee, indicate the employee’s date of hire and include all earnings from the date of hire through the day prior to their injury.
If you are not sure how or what to submit for earnings, call Tami at (480)505-0409.
