Haller v. Champlain College, 2017 VT 86 [filed 9/29/2017]
ROBINSON, J. The question in this workers’ compensation case is whether employer Champlain College is obligated to include in claimant Kimberly Haller’s average weekly wage calculation the value of tuition-free college credits she earned in accordance with employer’s graduate tuition policy. On cross-motions for summary judgment, the Commissioner of the Department of Labor concluded that the tuition benefits provided by employer and used by claimant was an “other advantage” that constituted part of claimant’s wages. 21 V.S.A. § 601(13). We agree and affirm.
