Does the insurer pay me wages I am losing on my other job?

You would have to report your earnings from the 2nd job to the insurer paying your workers compensation benefits. The insurer would pay you partial benefits, compensating you for a percentage of your lost wages. You would have to be covered by a workers' compensation insurance at your 2nd job for the income to be included in your average weekly wage (i.e. - if you had a 2nd job with the federal government, that income would not count towards determining benefits under state law.)
