Article 2. Benefits of California Labor Code >> Division 4. >> Part 1. >> Chapter 9. >> Article 2.
Where liability for compensation exists, such compensation
shall be provided as limited by this chapter.
If an enrollee suffers injury or death in the performance of
his duties under an economic opportunity program, then, irrespective
of his remuneration from this or other employment, his average weekly
earnings for the purpose of determining temporary and permanent
disability indemnity shall be determined in accordance with Section
4453, provided that for the purpose of this chapter only, there shall
be no statutory minimum average weekly earnings for temporary
disability indemnity. If the injury sustained by an enrollee causes
death, death benefits shall be determined in accordance with Sections
4701 and 4702 of this code.
If the injury sustained by an enrollee causes permanent
disability, the percentage of disability to total disability shall be
determined for the occupation of a laborer of like age by applying
the schedule for the determination of the percentage of permanent
disabilities prepared and adopted by the appeals board.
In addition to death benefit in the event of fatal injury,
the reasonable expenses of the enrollee's burial shall be paid not to
exceed six hundred dollars ($600).
