Note: The report will list the pay date and total wages (regular, overtime, shift differential, sick, vacation, holiday) for each pay date. It will then add up the wages for all 13 bi-weekly pay periods (26 total weeks) and divide by 26 to provide the average weekly wage amount. This report can be sent directly to the workers compensation carrier as the official 26-week wage report.
