COVID-19 and OWCP Claims Workshop

COVID-19 and OWCP Claims Workshop

January 29, 2021   

At the direction of President Mark Dimondstein and in conjunction with the Industrial Relations Department, the APWU will be holding an information session for state and local presidents, their approved designees, and national officers on COVID-19 and OWCP. 

 Postal Employees who contract COVID-19 at work can file claims for workers’ compensation under the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act (FECA). At this workshop, participants will receive basic information about the recent bulletins issued by Department of Labor’s Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs (OWCP), as well as an overview of the steps a Postal Employee must take to submit a claim. 
 
OWCP is outside of the Union’s collective bargaining responsibilities with the Postal Service, and claim processing and approval is governed by FECA rules, regulations, and policies for OWCP claims.  This information session is informational only and will not provide legal advice on general or specific OWCP claim issues. It also is not a directive to any APWU member to submit a claim or to any state, local, national organization or representative to represent or assist any bargaining unit members in the claims process. The APWU neither implies nor guarantees that following the information provided will result in a claim being approved. 
 
Attendees are required to register in advance and have their registration approved by APWU Headquarters.
