Reading some guys article about the npr. Who else is going to fight for us to get something for all the crap we go through, even though I still don't get what it's about, and no one has guaranteed anything to us so what are the chances the p.o. is going to pay anything

We had one of those dudes where I worked. He did odd jobs outside the PO. One day he came in and told the story that he was cutting down a tree branch when it fell on him also striking his neck. He was laughing.
A few days later he told me it was bothering him.
Then a few days after that he claimed an on the job injury. He claimed a number one sack loaded with parcels struck him coming off a conveyor.
After that, he did little or nothing which was mostly what he did anyway.

For those affected by the National Reassessment Program (NRP) and considering hiring Thomas & Solomon and giving them one-third of everything - let's do the math.

Let's say that you earned $ 60,000 per year when you were NRP'd and you decided to take disability retirement. DR is 40% of your base wage, or $ 24,000 per year. Let's say you're out for five years, and your backpay equals $ 300,000. You give 1/3, or $ 100,000 to the class attorneys. That leaves you with $ 200,000 to pay back OPM the $ 120,000 they paid you over those five years. You're left with $ 80,000 if you don't count on Uncle Sugar getting his cut before the check is even in your hands. If we're generous with those figures, you're likely to have at least 15% taken out in taxes first. From $ 300,000, that's $ 45,000 taken off the top. You're left with about $ 35,000. That's barely more than six-months salary.

What if you were collecting wage-loss compensation at 75% of your base wage? 75% of $ 60,000 per year for five years is $ 225,000. After you receive the $ 300,000, and give up $ 100,000 to the attorneys, you have $ 200,000 to pay back $ 225,000 to OWCP.

People are so euphoric about winning their case after all these many years that it prevents them from thinking clearly. It's been such a long fight that everyone is exhausted and just wants it all over with. That's all very understandable, however it's preventing people from thinking clearly and thoughtfully about what they are giving up if they're willing to give up 1/3 to the class attorneys.

How can anyone win a eeo case when the judges are usps paid? I had a eeo case years ago on the usps trying to force me on psyche med and won that part but the other I did not and they have no specific form for on the job harassment.

Late justice by another person is still justice

Been through this, sent gal to EEOC, heard back. She'll have to be personal and specific to win or get them to take her case.

I believe in why complain now because of people like Bill Cosby when the truth starts coming out of the woodwork and people are backing each other up it solidifies a case.

/m2337, I agree with why complain now? If he stopped, maybe someone else talked with him. If it happened to someone else, then even old documentation would just solidify anyone else's new or old complaint about this person. I worked with two men (who were allowed to resign) who committed sexual harassment. Both cases (obviously) were pretty much handled "no tolerance".

I think you should report it because like I said even if it's an actionable it's knowledge.
Hopefully anybody else in the woodwork would come out as well.

I don't like the policies that you have to say that you don't like something especially if it's an action not just verbal.
I call it the one free feel policy and I do not like it.

It's information and I believe you should share it.
