U.S. Department of Labor Injuries
Treatment of Federal Work-Related Injuries | Federal Workers’ Compensation Claims | Occupational Injury and Illness
If you’re a federal employee and you’ve been hurt on the job, your first concern is finding the best treatment to help you fully recover from your injuries. But, how will you pay for the care you need? If your injuries keep you from doing your job, how will you meet your financial obligations? Are you at risk of losing your job if you need to take weeks or months off to fully recover?
As a federal worker, you have a number of programs available to you in the aftermath of a work-related injury. Most federal workers are eligible for benefits through the Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs (OWCP) if they suffer an injury on the job. In addition, you may be entitled to unpaid leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), with a guarantee that your job will be waiting for you when you return (provided you are not gone more than 13 weeks).
At Ideal Chiropractic, we understand the many concerns you may have after a workplace injury or illness. We provide comprehensive treatment to federal workers who have been hurt in the course of their employment.
