If I’m asked to work during the pandemic and I contract the flu while at work, will I be covered by workers’ compensation?
If an employee or the family of an employee believes illness or on-the-job death resulted from a work related incident, they will be able to file a workers’ compensation claim. However, the Department of Labor makes determinations on entitlement to workers’ compensation, and each case is judged on its own merits. To apply for workers’compensation benefits, contact your local servicing human resources office. Information on workers’ compensation benefits for Federal employees can be found at www.dol.gov/esa/regs/compliance/owcp/fecacont.htm
or by telephone at (866-OWCP-IVR (866-692-7487).
