Posted On: Oct 29, 2013

Article 29

Injury Compensation

Section 1. Liaison

To ensure that workers’ compensation claims are properly processed, the

Department has appointed Agency Workers’ Compensation Coordinators to provide

guidance and assistance, as needed, to supervisors and employees on the

procedures for filing workers’ compensation claims and employees’ and

supervisors’ rights and responsibilities concerning such claims. The Department

and/or individual Agencies will periodically publish the names, locations, and phone

numbers of the Agency Workers’ Compensation Coordinators. Employees and

Union stewards acting as the employees’ designated representatives in accordance

with Section 2.b. of this Article, may also obtain the name of their Workers’

Compensation Agency Coordinator from their servicing Human Resources Office.

Section 2. Counseling

a. When an employee claims that an injury or illness is work-related,

appropriate information and counseling will be provided by Management.

b. If the employee designates a Union steward as his/her representative,

Management will notify the steward of the claimant’s status.

Section 3. Leave Buy-Back

In accordance with appropriate regulations concerning the Federal Employees

Compensation Act, 5 U.S.C. 8100, the Department will whenever practicable

provide for employees to buy back annual or sick leave used in lieu of injury

compensation.
