OWCP Federal Workers Compensation Archives

Can I refuse a limited duty work offer after a job injury?

Workers' compensation benefits are a right to which everyone is entitled. Federal workers are no exception, even if the vehicles for delivering those benefits vary from what are available for private sector employees.

What do I need to know if I get hurt in my federal job?

Accidents can happen anytime, anywhere. That's sort of the nature of accidents. However, if you are a worker, and specifically a federal worker in Texas or anywhere federal employees are employed, risk of injury has a way of increasing.

Feds propose changes to OWCP benefits for maritime work injuries

Considering the size of the federal government, it's fair to ask whether there is any such thing as a small agency or division. It's a rhetorical question. As we noted in our last post on this federal employees' law blog, there is a broad array of programs covering different segments of the government workforce just to deal with compensation when injuries or illness on the job occur.

Are you clear on what you're entitled to under OWCP law?

No one likes to be pigeonholed. This may be particularly true of residents of Texas. Being stuck in a category may leave you feeling stripped of your individuality or reduced to a number. Unfortunately, when it comes to working for an organization as complicated as the federal government, some regimentation becomes necessary.

IRS workplace safety issues cited in new IG report

The headline reads, "Hundreds of IRS Workers Injured on the Job Every Year." If your first reaction is to snicker and say, "They must suffer lots of paper cuts," you'd be well off the mark. The fact of the matter, according to a new report by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, is that IRS workers across the country, including Texas, report in excess of 800 new injuries every year and most of them are due to slips, trips and falls.

Maintaining OWCP benefits for as long as needed, Part 2

Workers' compensation is supposed to be that no-fault safety net that helps workers get the treatment and therapy needed to recover and return to work. As we noted in our previous post, the benefit system for federal workers in Texas and across the country is separate from those for the private sector.

Maintaining OWCP benefits for as long as needed, Part 1

We suspect this is something most everyone has probably experienced before, especially at the big federal agency offices around the country. You happen to encounter a work colleague you haven't seen in awhile and he has a brace on his wrist that wasn't there before.

What treatment for dog bite can involve

A couple of weeks ago, we offered up an item about what might seem to be a rather mundane issue – the rate of U.S. Postal Service carriers attacked by dogs. Many might be surprised by the statistics in the latest annual report by the USPS on this subject. Officials reported 6,549 dog attacks in 2015. The scope of the kinds of injuries that may have been suffered wasn't delved into, but the number itself is significant.

Dog attacks not a thing of the past for postal carriers

In the news business, "Dog bites man" isn't considered a catchy headline. If it reads, "Man bites dog" – now you've got something. We doubt anyone in Texas, Georgia or anywhere else in the country has seen such a headline and we doubt you ever will. But there are plenty of sad instances in which human beings suffer devastating injuries due to vicious dog attacks. Among those victims are carriers of the U.S. Postal Service.
