The holidays bring peace, joy, hope – – and a lot of extra spending. To help ease the financial burden that the holidays often bring, many of us pick up seasonal employment.
Many workers are not familiar with this type of employment. Here are a few things you should know:
- Most importantly…YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO WORKERS’ COMPENSATION EVEN IF YOU ARE A SEASONAL EMPLOYEE.
- Your workers’ compensation benefit is based on ALL lost wages – If you work multiple jobs your wage loss benefit is calculated based on all of your lost income, not only from the job where you were injured.
- You are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits for ANY lost wages – If you work two jobs and you can work one but not the other, you can collect workers’ compensation benefits for the part of the income that you’ve lost due to your injury – even if you can do the job where the injury occurred.
If you have questions about an injury that occurred during a temporary or seasonal job, call Banks Law today at 215.561.1000. You work hard. Put us to work to protect your rights.
