Public employees are as susceptible to accidents at work as any other office worker. They slip and fall. They hurt themselves by lifting or moving office supplies or equipment. They suffer from muscle strain from sitting and typing all day.

Depending on which level of government is involved, workers’ compensation can operate very differently however. Federal employees are covered by the federal government, for example. The Federal Employee’s Compensation Act covers federal employees disabled or killed as a result of an injury or disease “sustained while in the performance of duty.” The Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs manages federal benefits and helps injured employees in four categories:
- Wage replacement benefits
- Medical treatment
- Vocational rehabilitation
- Other benefits
Some federal employees fall under their own specialized programs, such as railroad workers, who are covered by the Federal Employer’s Liability Act. Most state and local employees, on the other hand, are typically covered by that state’s workers’ compensation law, like most private employees. If you are a state or local employee and you have been injured while on the job, Burg Simpson’s Colorado workers’ comp lawyers are here to help you! Call us before it is too late.
