“OWCP Federal Workers’ Compensation is as if someone blindfolds you, drops you off at a pier, and tells you to walk straight until you fall into the water. You have no idea how far the pier spans. It could go for miles or it could drop-off within a couple of yards. Inevitably, though, you will end up treading water.”

Harris Federal Law Firm Announces New Training Webinars For Federal Workers

As a firm that works with injured and disabled federal employees across the country and abroad, Harris Federal is providing FREE training webinars for federal workers to learn more about their rights and benefits.

Federal employees now have new resources to learn more about their rights and benefits. Harris Federal Law Firm, a national employment law firm representing federal workers, will host four free webinars within the coming months. The webinar topics will pertain to federal employee benefits, such as OWCP federal workers’ compensation and OPM federal disability retirement.

“We realize that not many federal employees know about their rights to collect benefits when a medical condition hinders them from doing their job, and we believe these webinars will serve as an invaluable resource,” said Senior Attorney Brad Harris.

The webinars are free and open to the public, and will occur monthly. For the webinar presented in May, “Money Talk: Financial Considerations to Address Before Regular or Federal Disability Retirement,” the firm will feature guest panelist Matt Whitten, a financial consultant with United Benefits.

“Filing for federal disability retirement requires federal workers to make critical financial decisions, and they often don’t know who to turn to for advice. We know the team at United Benefits, and they do a phenomenal job guiding federal workers throughout the process. We are excited to include Matt in our upcoming webinar,” said Brad Harris, “It’s a webinar you really won’t want to miss.”

 

Federal employees can learn more about each webinar by going to the Resources page on the Harris Federal website.
