Injury Compensation - Restoration Rights

Employees who have fully or partially recovered from an employment-related injury have certain job retention rights. An employee who recovers within one year of beginning compensation has mandatory restoration rights to his or her old position or its equivalent, regardless of whether he or she is still on the agency rolls. If full recovery occurs after one year, or the employee is considered partially recovered, he or she is entitled to priority consideration.

No compensably injured worker will be separated from employment rolls for reasons related to the disability without prior certification by the agency medical officer that the individual is incapacitated for reemployment in the foreseeable future.
