Text Search

Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

62-4-3Amount of temporary total disability compensation.

The amount of temporary total disability compensation paid to an employee for an injury is equal to sixty-six and two-thirds percent of the employee's earnings, but not more than one hundred percent computed to the next higher multiple of one dollar of the average weekly wage in the state as defined in § 62-4-3.1 per week and not less than one-half of the foregoing percentages of the average weekly wage of the state per week. However, if an employee earned less than fifty percent of the maximum allowable amount per week, the amount of compensation may not exceed one hundred percent of the employee's earnings calculated after the earnings have been reduced by any deduction for federal or state taxes, or both, and for the Federal Insurance Contributions Act made from such employee's total wages received during the period of calculation of the employee's earnings.
