OSCAR-Calcs is a PC-based software application which addresses the most common date and arithmetic functions that arise during the course of a workers' compensation case. Since its initial release in December, 2007, a number of comments and suggestions have been received from Judges of Compensation as well as members of the workers' compensation bar. These suggestions have been incorporated into the program over the years.
There are currently two versions of OSCAR availailable:
- Downloadable software application
- Web version - Launched in 2015
Important: You should download and print the "OSCAR-Calcs Installation Reference" below, prior to downloading the full software version. The software must be downloaded yearly to ensure the latest rates are available for the calculations. This latest version has the 2016 maximum & minimum rates.
