If the company has light duty available to you at a reduced pay, comp should make up for 2/3's the difference. The company should owe you full comp for the time they did not have light duty work available to you. With regard to not being able to get in touch with your adjuster, ask for his or her supervisor. Good luck. Jim Hasser
