Average weekly earnings, as determined by Section 70(1) of The Workers’ Compensation Act, 2013 (the “Act”), means the greater of:
Daily rate of benefits means the weekly rate of benefits divided by the number of days worked in a seven day period.
Irregular rest days occur when a worker’s days off fluctuate from week to week, or month to month.
Regular rest days occur when a worker receives the same days off every week (e.g., every week the worker works from Monday to Friday, and Saturday and Sunday are the worker’s rest days).
Repeating cycle rest days occur when the number of days off repeat during the worker’s normal work cycle (e.g., 3 weeks on, 1 week off).
