OWCP doesn't give you a job offer. What they do is determine whether a job offer is suitable or not. You wait for OWCP to do a suitability determination.

Snowed: I went in with my union president this morning. Station mgr was so sweet, it was disgusting. Asked how I was doing, I muttered fine. Yesterday he told me I was going in to case for an hour. Went in uniform today, and was told if I accepted job offer, I would start tomorrow. I asked, and told him repeatedly thoughout the "job offer" about my "OFF DUTY" case, and told him he knew I couldn't do it. He said he never saw the CA-17, he just sent it to HR. I told him I faxed them every month twice. He wouldn't even answer me about them. He would change the subject. He never told me I had "time" to get with my doctor to discuss the job offer. He told me the job offer came from do. I told him it didn't come from owcp, as it had the post office logo. He said it did. I told him that workers comp knew I was off for the neck case. He told me that dol had combined all of my cases. Told him they couldn't and wouldn't. He read the whole job offer to me and told me if I was going to accept or decline. I told him I couldn't do it because I was being forced to break my restrictions on my other case. He told me to sign either accept or decline. I told him I would sign decline because I couldn't break my restriction, and I needed to know where to put about my other case and why I was refusing. He told me to put right underneath it.I did bring up to him what about using my annual leave, I have 300 hours, and he ignored me. I filled out a 1260 for 14 minutes, and asked for copy, he gave me one, and I walked out with my union president. All he said how are you doing when he walked in, told them goodbye, and told sta mgr he'd get with him later, talking about my leave he told me later. I did all of the standing up and talking, not him. WHAT a JOKE. I tried every way in the world, but nothing worked. At least I tried, typical, don't know what to do now.

No I wouldn't go in for the hour unless you planned to leave injured again. If you go back to work even for an hour, you are showing them your off duty note is a sham, and they will expect you to keep coming back. If push came to shove I would start to work and the first sign of increased pain, I would be out again on a new injury.....maybe 5-10 minutes.

Went and got job offer, and wrote declined on it, underneath it I put do to total restriction due to another case. Filled out CA-7, and CA-7-A, and sent off today, so I can maybe get the ball rolling again, as I need my money and benefits. If they deny me, I'm going to have this one put me back to work, rather have a breakdown there, then have 1 at home and lose it all.

SNOWED: THANK YOU THANK YOU. 2 cases with 1 doctor, those are the ones he put me back with severe restrictions. His claim worker couldn't believe that "IDIOT is trying to put me back to work for 1 hour. Other case has me OFF DUTY, different doctor, which I can't get to tomorrow, as he is an hour drive away, and he closes at 12:00, and I can''t drive that far at a stretch, due to restrictions. I even told him I couldn't work, and OFF DUTY. How can OWCP give me a job offer, if I am off for 1 of my cases? They know that. Union president will be there at 7:30 tomorrow, when I go. Husband told me to stay in car until president shows up. Union wants me to use my annual, which I was counting on, and retire end of March. I really needed that money. Filled out CA-7 a while ago so as to get in mail tomorrow for "OFF DUTY case. Have been so busy, I just got case back on duty with very tight restrictions on 02-10-2015. He wouldn't let a guy work, and he's forcing me to work, and I CAN'T! I am going to upload a document in a few minutes, and tell them the whole conversation also! Would you clock in and work for the hour, even though you are off duty for another case? That case is for my spine and neck. I have discs going in spinal column, and stress could push them in and sever cord, that's why doctor has me off. Would you use annual leave?

"Federal law allows recording of phone calls and other electronic communications with the consent of at least one party to the call. A majority of the states and territories have adopted laws based on the federal standard. But 12 states, including California, require the consent of all parties to the call under most circumstances. These are are California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, and Washington. For a state-by-state guide to taping laws, including a discussion of federal law and references to caselaw, see the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press guide, www.rcfp.org/taping/. "

I would also immediately upload a statement to OWCP explaining why you can't accept this limited duty job offer. I would also start taping your telephone conversations with this boss. You can't record on the job site but you can record your phone conversation if you do not live in a two party consent state.

Do you have the same doctor for each injury? That could be a problem of misunderstanding.

onmywayout-
Under no circumstances should you cave in. Only OWCP can do a suitability determination. If you don't show up OWCP will then decide. Make sure the case number you are being paid on has ALL of your medical restrictions from all three files. Did you contact your union? Direct orders are for those on duty and do not apply if safety or health is at risk.

By the way, another carrier was released to back for 8 hours a year ago, and he wouldn't let him in the door. He won the grievance, but he lost almost half of everything. Had to sell his prized motorcycles to keep going. How cruel can anybody be?

Darnshame and Snowed and All: Got a SHOCK today. I was off on 3 different cases. On 02-10,2015, doctor put me back with very limited restrictions on 2 cases. My other case has me OFF DUTY. My station manager that tried to extort me in December to retire, or I couldn't get my leave back now has a new angle. He called me this afternoon and told me to report to work tomorrow for 1 HOUR. Told him I was OFF DUTY. He told me he had a job offer for me to go in and case 1 HOUR. Told me I had to report. Told him I would have to call my doctor, he told me he really didn't care who I called, but I would report in the morning at 7:30 to sign job offer and case for 1 hour. Again I told him I couldn't, that I would break my restriction, and he again said he didn't care. He was giving me a direct order and hung up. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I am getting ready to fill out CA-7 from 02-10-2015 and on. I have been having to work on the 4 EEO's since before I got released on 2, but I still have 1 OFF DUTY. Having trouble breathing due to muscle spasms in back. ANY HELP WOULD be appreciated
