Legal Question in Workers Comp in California

Is there a cap to Workers Comp salary? I know you are entitled to 2/3 tax free, but is it true that there is a cap of around $958.00 per week? Even if 2/3 of your salary is much higher than that amount?

Yes, there is a cap because the purpose is to provide some money to live on [since it is tax free it will be about the same amount as your normal take home pay] but not to serve as a dlisability insurance policy, etc. It is a no fault system that tries to have some barriers to prevent abuse of the system and reduce its costs. You can goggel WC TD salary limit to find out what the maximum was on the day of your injury.
