"b. Preliminary Assessment of Position. On receipt of a copy of the written job offer, the Claims
Examiner (CE) should review it and consider the factors listed below in making a preliminary
assessment of whether the offered job is suitable. If none of these factors applies to the case and
the claimant has accepted the job, a formal finding of suitability need not be made.
(1) A job which involves less than four hours of work per day where the claimant is
capable of working four or more hours per day will be considered unsuitable. " Feca manual pt2

rivkah-
Jobs, at one point, that do not have a fixed number of hours were being declared unsuitable. This was stated in a FECA Bulletin but do not not carry much weight as they have expiration dates on them. It would be worth it to mention to CE if that is an issue for you.

rivkah...my job offer wasn't put on form 2499 as page 2 states to stay within your drs restrictions and po isn't using my dr's restrictions, so beware..po is always thinking up new crap to see if it sticks...

Usps is using the webesp program to identify "available necessary" work. Only certain types of work can be input & if mgmt doesn't put anything in for their office then nothing dhows up as available. Looks like all job offers are now temp with this program. 2499 is used for all offers.

Snowed. Thank you. As mmi do they have to give me a fixed # of hrs or can they vary it daily? I believe that is their intent. Who said the nrp is over?

yes if they cut your hours you file a ca-2a and a ca-7. This is for withdrawal of limited duty job/hours.

I am on the periodic rolls for 2 hrs a day. If they cut my hrs below 6 do I file CA2A & CA7 as during the nrp? Union is telling me no

They agreed to let me take the offer to my dr & are bringing me a revised 2499 tomorrow with more hrs but don't know how many or what work. Any advice is more than welcome.

The union prez advised me to file for unemployment but in pa you have to be actively looking for a new job & going to career link. She didnt know that nwa qualifies as a recurrence. If I can work 6 hrs what is the minimum they can offer to be a suitable offer. They are saying the hrs & work can change daily.

I called the union who will talk to injury comp& this guy. He's in a conference call & then I have to go back in. I quoted feca rules on job offers. Everything was ignored. Only thing that matters is webesp. d

Was just made a job offer for 2 hrs a day doing work not in my restriction . I am mmi & restricted to work 6 hrs. They want me to sign now or tell them what leave I want & go home. Im currently doing 6 hrs in another office but staring at th wall most of the day. I was taken from a productive job 10 mths ago & have been put through the meat grinder. I used the postal advocates ltr which they ignored. Help.

Me, I wasn't on OWCP. I went to my doctor and told my doctor that I couldn't keep reaching above my head to case mail all morning or reach into three trays and reach out to mail boxes anymore. I've had 4 shoulder surgeries,and two cervical spine fusions, and just couldn't do it anymore after 24 years. The doctor wrote a note on a ca-17, and the Postmaster offered me the new position at the same rate. I was still on the carrier roll until I was kicked out.

dogged... I don't like to talk to injury comp as they are my biggest problem.. i'm sure they are the ones that wrote the bogus job offer and had my PM sign his name to it...actually I fiqured I would take a copy of my last CA-17 with restrictions and have dr just use that one...but good idea with making copies, I just usually never had to ask for a CA-17, injury comp always just sent me one, I believe they are trying to make like my old injury doesn't exist.. I have pre-arb decision on that one where until they give me job offer that follows the elm they have to give me AL/SL until that happens...

Me, ask injury comp for a ca-17 and make copies for yourself. That way you will not have to ask for a ca-17.
