  • ECA (Workers’ Compensation) Legislation Passes in the House
    Jun 08, 2022

    SUMMARY:  NTEU-supported legislation has passed the House of Representatives giving federal employees more options when filing FECA claims.

    Last night, the U.S. House of Representatives passed HR 6087, the Improving Access to Workers’ Compensation for Injured Federal Workers Act of 2022 by a vote of 325-83.  NTEU endorsed this legislation, and I wrote a letter this week to each member of the House of Representatives asking them to support this bill. 

    This bill would improve access to benefits under the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act (FECA), which serves as the workers’ compensation program for federal employees.  It does so by allowing workers to have their medical care provided by a Nurse Practitioner (NP) or Physician Assistant (PA), as well as have NPs and PAs provide certification of injury.  This bipartisan bill was introduced by Representatives Joseph Courtney (D-CT) and Timothy Walberg (R-MI).  I am grateful to both of these members of Congress for their leadership on this important matter.

    National President
