The pre-injury average weekly earnings (PIAWE) is the income that an injured worker earned over the 52 week period prior to the injury. The calculation of PIAWE is difficult and the insurers have made many errors when making this determination.
ICARE has found that many workers have not been paid their correct weekly payments because of the complex process required to determine PIAWE.
There has been an estimate that workers have been underpaid $80 million and iCare now wants to ensure that workers have been paid correctly.
