Do injured workers with multiple employers get compensate when one workers’ compensation claim prevents work in all their jobs?

Do injured workers with multiple employers get compensate when one workers’ compensation claim prevents work in all their jobs?

Generally, an injured worker only receives compensation at the compensation rate for the employer that they were working for at the time of the injury. Workers’ compensation insurance companies are not responsible for the lost time of workers at other jobs. At the same time, the insurance company is not entitled to a credit for income that an injured worker returns to (if the worker had the second job at the time of the injury and the injured worker does not increase their compensation from the second job upon return after injury).
