NJ Maximum Disability to Increase 2% to $826.00 Per Week

The NJ workers' compensation rate is mandated by statute and the the increase from $810. per week paid in 2012 is adjusted based upon the States' Average Weekly Wage (SAWW). The 1979 amendments to the act adjusted the then $40.00 maximum rate based upon the SAWW formulate to keep payments inline with actual salaries.
