NWE is capped at the greater of the weekly earnings the person would receive if they had continued in the same employment they had at the date of:

  • their injury; or
  • their discharge.

The person’s NWE should be investigated at both points in time. Often the person will be earning more at their date of discharge i.e. as a result of promotions, pay increases etc. than at the date of injury though exceptions to this will occur i.e. the person may have been receiving allowances at their date of injury (see section 4.6), or the person may have been transferred to a different corps with a lower pay group.

5.8.1 Normal Weekly Hours (NWH)

Normal Weekly Hours (NWH) is the number of hours per week worked by the person before their injury.
