Highlight

For determining a worker's average weekly wage for receiving a disability benefit, "seasonal employment" includes an occupation that has periods of forty-five consecutive days of not receiving wages.
Under the 1997 version of N.D.C.C. 65-05-09, a disabled employee is entitled to a weekly benefit equal to two-thirds of the employee's gross weekly wage, subject to a minimum of sixty percent of the state's average weekly wage, but not to exceed one-hundred percent of the employee's preinjury net weekly wage, after deducting social security and federal income tax.
