### Ogilvie: You’re working too hard

If you’re using my Ogilvie calculator for situations involving a 100% earnings loss, **you’re working too hard**. [1]

If you have 100% earnings loss and WPI less than 45, the Ogilvie adjustment formula will

alwaysresult in WPI + 18.

Not to worry. I can make Ogilvie *even easier*:

The Ogilvie mathematical proof has been available for several weeks for peer review. I’ve only received positive feedback.[2] The above Ogilvie Adjustment Chart has been testing by myself and other workers’ compensation attorneys, but like everything else on this site is provided subject to all legal disclaimers.

Here’s a peek at what they look like:

Is there an article that gives a simple explanation of how to do an Ogilvie rating?

Good question. I’ve tried to demystify the calculations as best as I can. However, it is a fairly involved multi-step calculation. Have you tried my Ogilvie calculator? That calculator’s outputs are what you should get when you perform the entire calculation.
