Temporary Disability & Wage Loss in California

Losing your regular income due to a workplace injury can impact your quality of life. Fortunately, the law provides for some measure of relief to injured workers.

Temporary disability is when an injured worker is entitled to receive 2/3 of his average weekly wage up to certain limits while he or she is unable to work. Temporary disability is capped, in most cases, at 104 weeks. It is important to note that there are some exceptions to this rule with state and county workers because of their employment contracts, which can change at any time. Generally, an injured worker does not receive wages while temporarily disabled.

When the employee can return to work in a part-time capacity, he or she can receive “wage loss.” The term is misleading because "wage loss" actually means that the worker will receive a portion of the temporary disability that represents the wage loss.

FAQ About Lost Wages & Income:

Our experienced lawyer answers your questions about lost wages and income as a result of work injuries:

How much will I receive in compensation for Temporary Disability in California?

  • Temporary disability wages are generally two-thirds of the gross, pre-tax wages you lost while unable to work. There is also a set weekly maximum that you will be allowed to collect which is determined by law and typically changes from year to year.

How much will I receive for Permanent Disability in California?

  • This amount is normally determined by the workers' compensation claims administrators, who will determine the amount based on your disability rating (expressed as a percentage), the date of your injury, and what your wages were before you were injured.
