Written by Eleanor Laws, an Administrative Law Judge, Federal Sector Workers’ Compensation Basics describes the worker's compensation process, from internal agency handling of a claim through the OWCP process. Easy to read, this Basics book sets forth the elements required to establish a claim for compensation and provides tips for contesting (or "controverting") claims.
Supervisors and employees who need to know the basics of workers' compensation but whose day-to-day duties are not focused on the workers' compensation process can rely on this text to better understand:
- Requests for reconsideration
- Appeals to the ECAB
- Emotional Conditions
- Continuation of Pay
- Disability and Death Benefits
- Schedule Awards
- Medical Treatment
- Privacy Act Consideration
Also included is a detailed table of contents.
