FCA concluded that the Umpire erred in including amounts for vac. pay, an annual incentive allowance and a 25-year service award as part of the claimant's normal weekly earnings. Court ruled that the term normal weekly earnings means the ordinary, usual earnings that a claimant receives or earns on a regular basis and does not include the amounts in question here, which are more properly characterized as fring benefits or extra amounts.
