Better, Faster, Stronger

Random Access Memories

A friend brought a problem with the website to my attention. Their emails weren’t getting through – or were getting delayed. This kind of injustice cannot stand!

Thus, began a several day long dive down a rabbit hole of support questions, a deep look at code I’d written as long as ten years ago, and a few nights staying up to tangle with some esoteric settings.

What does my insomnia mean for you, kindly reader? Those of you who are paid or sponsored subscribers will enjoy better, faster emails of your calculations direct to your inbox.

Thanks Rafael!

Calculators Back Online!

What he said

I was not prepared for the number of emails, phone calls, and texts from people asking me about the calculators.

While I’m still tinkering with some parts, the two calculators that people use the most, the permanent disability rating and the dollar value calculators, are both available. The rest will be back soon. :)

Server Maintenance

Ah! Internet server maintenance!

As they say, “valar dohaeris” … “All men must serve.”

The calculators will be back soon.

New Legislation and Calculator Updates!

The Great Seal of California

The Great Seal of California

As you are probably aware there have been a number of changes to workers’ compensation benefit rates lately.  The Administrative Director issued the latest temporary disability maximum and minimum rates based upon the most recent increases in the state average weekly wage.  These rate changes effect temporary total disability, temporary partial disability, death benefits, and permanent total disability benefits.

More interestingly, the legislature brought several reform changes with SB 863 to California workers’ compensation benefits late on Friday August 31, 2012.  If you check out the updated Labor Code Section 4453, you’ll notice there is a new maximum permanent partial disability rate for the highest levels of permanent disability for dates of injury after 1/1/2013.  And, reviewing Labor Code Section 4658, you’ll see the 15% adjustments have been removed for dates of injury after 1/1/2013.

All of the website’s calculators have been updated to reflect these latest changes!  Enjoy!
