It seems that the company actually has a large number of employees in India! Good luck with that! There is the time difference, the lack of knowledge in our systems procedures and the unfamiliarity with American English that made other companies long ago abandon offshore processing of customer relations.
  Speaking personally it is a FUBAR .

OWCP in a post CNSI world - billing problems - a message for medical providers
The transition by OWCP to its new billing contractor CNSI seems to have been an unmitigated disaster for medical providers.


While there was all sorts of messaging in the lead up to the change that there would be a seamless transition, that has not been the case. I have assisted multiple medical providers who have been unable to resolve their set up and billing issues with the new system due to the myriad problems with the new billing system software that simply did not work when it went live and the stories about the lack of any competent assistance from the CNSI "help line" led one medical office to refer to them as the "no help line."


Please do not give up on these claims. If you are the person handling medical billing and have been unable to resolve the enrollment and/or billing problems since the transition to CNSI please reach out to me so that I can help connect you with someone at OWCP who really is trying to help resolve these problems.


Kindly write me a brief message and provide your contact information through my website at this link and I will follow up with you:

If you are a FECA claimant whose medical provider is having billing problems with CNSI's handling of OWCP bills, please share this post with your medical provider.

Greetings,

I hope you, your loved ones, and colleagues are well. I’m writing to update you on the Federal Employee Education & Assistance Fund’s (FEEA) ongoing programs in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

First, we have introduced a free cloth mask distribution program for federal and postal employees. Eligible employees can sign up here: https://feea.org/masks/

Second, for feds who have Leave Without Pay (LWOP) due to COVID-19 illness or quarantine, FEEA is offering up to $1,000 in assistance. Lower income federal and postal employees (annual salary under $75,000/yr) are eligible for up to a $500 grant and $500 no-fee, no-interest loan; feds making over $75,000/yr are eligible for up to $1,000 loan. Eligible employees can apply at: http://feea.org/coronavirus-help.

Third, FEEA is also offering $1,000 bridge grants to the surviving spouse or child of federal and postal employees who have passed away due to COVID-19 and to federal and postal employees who lose a spouse or child due to the virus. Those affected should email emergency@feea.org for more information.

Finally, we are also still updating our COVID-19 resource page for federal employees, which can be found at: http://feea.org/coronavirus/.

All of these programs are thanks to the many individual and organizational donors who have stepped forward at this time of national tragedy to support FEEA and our work.

Please help us spread the word to feds in need!

The ‘judge’ will find another reason to delay progress. Maybe when one of her family members is denied justice she’ll change. She’s shown us who she is.

Hopefully we will hear something soon from this long drawn out NRP CASE.

Aren’t we at the end of the, supposed 90 day stay?? Are we going to get paid before the UNITED STATES 🇺🇸 falls apart?

Most NRP members have been long suffering already, this COVID-19 doesn’t make life easier for us.

Have they NO SYMPATHY?
I HOPE EVERYONE IS WELL! 😷😷😷

NEW ‘DIGEST OF EEO LAW’ ISSUED BY EEOC
Includes Key Federal Sector Decisions and Special Article on Claims of Harassment and the Problem of Fragmentation

WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) today announced that the newest edition of the federal sector Digest of Equal Employment Opportunity Law (EEO Digest), is now available on the EEOC’s website.

The EEO Digest, a quarterly publication prepared by the EEOC’s Office of Federal Operations (OFO), features a wide variety of recent Commis­sion decisions and federal court cases of interest. This particular edition includes summaries of note­worthy decisions issued by the EEOC on subjects such as Attorneys’ Fees, Class Certification, Compen­satory Damages and Complaint Processing. It also includes an article addressing the consequences of fragmentation on harassment claims. “Fragmented processing of a claim can compromise a complainant’s ability to present an integrated and coherent claim, particularly with regard to allegations of unlawful harassment,” said Carlton M. Hadden, director of the EEOC’s Office of Federal Operations (OFO). “This article provides important information for stakeholders on identifying and properly addressing and processing claims susceptible to fragmentation.”

The Digest includes hyperlinks so stakeholders can easily access the full decisions that have been summarized.

The summaries are neither intended to be exhaustive or definitive as to the selected subject matter, nor are they to be given the legal weight of case law in citations. In addition to the quarterly Digest, Commission federal sector decisions are available on the EEOC's website.

The public may also receive federal sector information updates and news items via GovDelivery and Twitter. The EEOC enforces federal laws prohibiting employment discrimination in the public and private sectors. Further information about the EEOC is available online at www.eeoc.gov.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

June 22, 2020

 

EEOC UNVEILS NEW ONLINE VISUAL DATA PRESENTATION
Federal Agency Introduces New Way of Illustrating Discrimination Statistics

 

    WASHINGTON – The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has created new data visualizations to illustrate existing online employment discrimination data found here, the federal agency announced today.

The purpose of these visuals, created by the EEOC’s Office of Enterprise Data and Analytics (OEDA), is to display enforcement data in a simple, comprehensible, and visually appealing way for all the EEOC’s stakeholders.

“These data visualizations will help illustrate statistics for employment discrimination charges and resolutions for the general public as well as specialists in anti-discrimination law,” said EEOC Chair Janet Dhillon. “Additionally, these new visual tools are part of the agency’s broader effort to bring greater transparency to EEOC’s operations.”

The visuals illustrate data over five years for charges of employ­ment discrimination and resolutions for:

All Charges
Retaliation Charges
Sexual Harassment Charges
“OEDA is pleased to provide these new tools for the public,” said Chief Data Officer Dr. Chris Haffer. “Data visualizations, such as those released today, are just one example of the products OEDA is developing as part of its effort to build a 21st century data analytics office at the EEOC.”

The EEOC advances opportunity in the workplace by enforcing federal laws prohibiting employment discrimination. More information is available at www.eeoc.gov. Stay connected with the latest EEOC news by subscribing to our email updates.

Your job duties during the pandemic can cause PTSD

Someone's reaction to the day to day duties of their job can be a compensable work injury. If your job put you in contact with the public and/or coworkers in a setting that exposed you to the risk of contracting Covid-19, that situation can give some people PTSD or other anxiety disorders. There are no settlements in a federal employee's FECA case. Benefits provided by OWCP would be medical care and wage loss payments for the time that this condition prevents you from being able to work, or for the time that there is not modified duty work available for you. Its always important to document that you have asked for work within your restrictions as if you fail to document this, you may end up not being paid because your agency could say that if you had only asked of course they would have accommodated you.


If you or a coworker has become ill in the course of dealing with the pandemic in the performance of work duties, you should be aware that you may be able to receive federal workers compensation benefits. I continue to hear from federal employees that they are being told by supervisors that acquiring Covid-19 from your federal employment is not a workers compensation matter. That is simply wrong.


Here is a link to an article I found interesting that discusses how dealing with the pandemic can give some people PTSD:

Should you be put on emergency suspension, pending removal, the PO can hold up your retirement by not sending your file to OPM.

It sucks but it makes you settle the underlying case asap.

Muffin,

I will clear up four other lies of yours.

1.) I'm eligible to retire so I'm not too worried about being fired.

2.) I was honorably discharged after my four year stint.

3.) The USAF begged me to re-enlist and even offered me my base of choice.

4.) I'm straight as an arrow unlike yourself and your college experimentation.

Nice try asswipe.

WARNING: Do not listen to dumb as a rock Ed White. He is a three time dui loser.

They kicked him out of the air force with a general and got barred from reenlisting.
And he is gay.

WARNING: Do not listen to the Muffinman. He faked Carpel Tunnel Syndrome to stay on light duty while he used up all his sick leave when he a postal worker. He is also a known VA scammer who cries about some ringing in his ears. If you see any of his posts, please disregard them and alert your local authorities.
