The Federal Managers Association has written to the Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs in the Labor Department asking it to overhaul the Federal Employees Compensation Act, the benefit program for work-related illnesses and injuries. FMA recommended that the FECA disability benefit be reduced from three-fourths to two-thirds of income, that a FECA retirement program be established, that benefit increases be based on active employee raises, not inflation, that the right to resume employment be extended from one to three years and that disparities by pay grades in “schedule awards” for loss of bodily members be eliminated.
