Where your employment is for 30 or more hours a week and for five or more working days a week, section 4453(c)(1) provides that the average weekly earnings shall be the number of working days a week times the daily earnings at the time of the injury.
Two or More Employers
If you work for two or more employers at or about the time of your injury, section 4453(c)(2) of the Labor Code provides that the average weekly earnings shall be taken as the aggregate of these earnings from all employments computed in terms of one week. Keep in mind, though, that earnings from employments other than the employment in which your injury occurred shall not be taken at a higher rate than the hourly rate paid at the time of your injury.
Earnings at Irregular Rate
If your earnings are at an irregular rate, or are specified to be by week, month, or other period, then the average weekly earnings shall be, under section 4453(c)(3) of the Labor Code, the average actual earnings for any convenient period that does not exceed 1 year.
Part-Time Work or Fair & Reasonable Result
Where your employment is for less than 30 hours per week, or where the previous methods for computing average weekly earnings would not produce a fair and reasonable result, section 4453(c)(4) provides that the average weekly earnings shall be taken at 100 percent of the sum which reasonably represents your average weekly earning capacity at the time of your injury, due consideration being given to your actual earnings from all sources and employments.
