Employees of the VA hospital truly care for their patients and will do anything to help ensure that the veterans’ quality of life is returned to them. This has the potential to result in injuries or sickness for the employees. VA hospital employees who are injured or become sick while performing their duties at the hospital are eligible for workers’ compensation benefits through the federal government under the Department of Labor-Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs (DOL-OWCP) as implemented by the Federal Employee Compensation Act (FECA). These benefits will cover your medical treatments and any additional recovery efforts that may need to be made such as physical therapy or rehabilitation.
As a post office worker, you are considered a federal employee and are therefore eligible for workers’ compensation benefits under the Department of Labor-Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs (DOL-OWCP) as implemented by the Federal Employee Compensation Act (FECA). This, of course, requires certain paperwork to be filled out in order to file your case and a clear connection to be made between your injury and the workplace circumstances which caused it.
