Ogilvie: You’re working too hard

Even this guy can do the Ogilvie adjustment calculation in his head

If you’re using my Ogilvie calculator for situations involving a 100% earnings loss, you’re working too hard1

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

  1. 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.
