If you do not have a regular monthly salary, then the department will usually average out the workers hours and wages earned over a typical period of time. The department often short-changes works in this event. Gross monthly wages also include the value of some employer-paid benefits, like medical insurance, and bonuses. Once the department establishes a gross monthly wage, the worker receives a percentage of it as time loss. The percentage goes up if the worker has a spouse or dependents.
