CHAPTER 27

AN ACT TO AMEND CHAPTER 23, TITLE 19, DELAWARE CODE, ENTITLED WORKMEN'S COMPENSATION, BY INCREASING THE COMPENSATION FOR TOTAL DISABILITY.

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Delaware:

Section 1. Section 2324, Title 19, Delaware Code is hereby amended by repealing said Section 2324 and by substituting and enacting in lieu thereof a new Section 2324 as follows:

§ 2324. For injuries resulting in total disability, the compensation to be paid during the continuance of total disability shall be 66 2/3 per cent of the wages of the injured employee, as defined by this chapter, but the compensation shall not be more than $50 per week nor less than $25 per week. If at the time of injury the employee receives wages of less than $25 per week, then he shall receive the full amount of such wages per week as compensation. Nothing in this section shall require the payment of compensation after disability ceases.

Approved April 23, 1959.
