rivkah - well, that's too bad about getting the medical evidence for a new claim.

You have 45 days to file an EEO. You should call the EEO number now to get your paperwork for EEO retaliation then, since you already filed an EEO.

Niece... The recurrence claim is because of the withdrawal of my prior limited duty job. They took the old one away & offered a new one simultaneously.

As far as a new claim I don't feel my drs will write up reports that will be thorough enough to win & it would be 3 different drs. If the dr for my work injury had done the report the way he should have I wouldn't be in this mess.

I do understand about aggravation. Its hard to get the drs to do what's needed.

Does anyone know the time limit to file an eeo? I already have 1 against HRM & I believe this is retaliation. Honestly Im worn out from yrs of fighting. I wish I could get out now but need to hang in at least 4 more yrs. I have 28 yrs in & was injured in 1992.

rivkah - Recurrence claims are very difficult. It's better to file a whole new claim because it sounds like the new job is increasing your pain and other non-work illnesses. I'm not sure you realize it, but non-work illnesses that are "aggravated" by work qualify as new claims. Just as the new job is increasing your pain of your original injury qualifies as a new claim.
Much easier to get approved by owcp.

The po can block whatever they want, unless you get the union involved. They can cause as much red tape as necessary.

Niece. Im reluctant to file a new claim. Im already fighting a recurrence claim. I still have residuals from work injury. The new job, which I've been doing since Sept., is increasing pain from that & other non work illnesses. I can't afford to be out of work again.

Injury Comp is clueless to what the job entails & doesn't want know. Some days I can pace myself. Others it's impossible. The therapist can recommend different ways of doing things and accomodations that will hopefully keep me from further injury. She can also be a witness to how difficult the work is for me.

The prez is almost impossible to contact. He is occassionally in my office. I will prob call national.

Can usps deny the ot entrance if owcp approved it? I called my claims examiner & left a brief message. He never called back, but sent a letter to talk to my lawyer or usps.

rivkah - Try asking the union president if you can grieve it. Then put the request in writing to DRAC if the president says you can't grieve it.

If you have to you can file a new claim.

The union (clerk) is saying there is no basis for a grievance.

Niece, Snowed & others...I recently had a telephone hearing to determine whether I had a recurrence when they took away my prior position & offered me a new one. When I asked for changes & tried to accept under duress they sent me home & requested a suitability determination. I contacted HQ HRM who had Eastern Area HRM help & some of the changes were made. I had been out for 5 1/2 mths at that point. I acceptedbut the job has been even more difficult than I expected & has increased symptoms from my work & non-work related illnesses. That is why the dr ordered the eval.

Niece. The union is saying it's not grievable. If I were to ask for a DRAC and ask for accommodation (is an eval considered an accommodation?) & am denied then they can grieve it. If OWCP has approved it,then it should be allowed. I shouldn't have to jump through hoops.

I am in a new limited duty position. My dr prescribed an onsite eval which has been approved by OWCP. HRM has refused to allow the therapist access to do the eval. What is my recourse?
