3 GENERAL INFORMATION Under the Longshore and Harbor Worker s Compensation Act (as amended by the NAFI), all Air Force NAF employees, (does not cover off-duty military, contract workers, and volunteers), are covered under guidelines for Workers Compensation for Air Force civilian NAF employees contained in AFI , Nonappropriated Fund Employees Workers Compensation Program. This is a self-insured and selfadministered program regulated by the Department of Labor. This program provides workers compensation benefits for injures or illness which arising out of and in the course and scope of employment. The benefits due to an AF NAF civilian employee who substantiated a job-related injury or illness may include disability payment, medical expenses, or death benefits. This enclosed is provided to help maintain accurate reporting procedures of Workers Compensation claims as well as reduce the resulting costs of these claims. In this package, you will find the information, procedures, and forms necessary to process all worker s compensation claims. SUPERVISOR RESPONSIBILITIES IAW AFM , it is the supervisor s responsibility to brief employees on procedures they must follow in reporting work-related injuries and illnesses. Brief and train employees on the proper procedures they must follow in reporting work-related injuries and illnesses. At first knowledge of an alleged job-related injury or illness, supervisor will arrange and provide necessary and timely assistance and all necessary forms. Supervisors will ensure all forms are completed accurately, signed, and originals forwarded to the HRO in a timely manner. Contact the squadron Ground Safety Officer and the HRO In the case of an employee s death or in the event of a seriously disabling injury or illness. Supervisors will make every attempt to arrange for light duty consistent with employees treating physician s release. Instruct and ensure injured employees submit all bills, forms, work restrictions, doctor s notes, etc. to the supervisor or the Human Resources Office. Be specific when completing documents such as date and time, location and how accident occurred. Include which body part, extremity, or joint was injured. Obtain written statements, names, address, and telephone number of any witness. Ensure employee follows all doctor s instructions. Ensure the Department of Labor Form LS-242, Notice to Employees are posted and maintained in customary bulletin board areas. Upon an employee s request for medical care due to an alleged injury, supervisor completes part A of Form LS-1, items 1 through 13 and sends this form with the employee to the medical treatment facility of their choice. The supervisor must inform the Human Resources Office and the squadron safety officer of all on the job injuries. Supervisors must work directly with the HRO on all matters pertaining to workers compensation benefits and promptly inform the HRO of any change in the employee status or work schedules. Keep in mind that you should maintain close contact with your employee who is losing time from work. Let them know you are concerned! 3

4 EMPLOYEE RESPONSIBILITIES & BENEFITS It is the employee s responsibility to report any injury or illness, no matter how slight, to their immediate supervisor. An injured or ill employee is responsible for notifying their supervisor of a return to work date or a return to light duty date with any medical restriction. The injured employee must attend all medical appointments and must inform their supervisor on a regular basis of their condition and any change in status. The employee turns in all bills, forms, work restrictions, Doctor s notes, etc. received by them to their supervisor or the Human Resources Office. The employee is entitled to receive Workers Compensation benefits when absent from work. The compensation benefit will not include payment for the first 3 days the employee is out of work, unless the period of disability exceeds 14 days. In that event, the first 3 days are paid retroactively. Employees losing time from work can expect a benefits payment every 14 days. An injured employee with a Regular employment category may also choose to have the compensation benefits supplemented by sick leave, but not to exceed 100% of employee s base wage. A completed OPM Form 71, Request for Leave or Approved Absence must be completed by the employee with the dates of lost time and annotate following remark: Supplementation of any workers compensation benefits due and sends the approved OPM Form 71 to the HRO. Call the HRO for guidance if the employee requests this. REDUCTION OF COSTS Your assistance is needed to enable employees to return to work as soon as their physician gives them approval and ultimately to help reduce the compensation costs to our activities. Supervisors must be willing to accommodate employees with suitable light or limited work assignment, to include: a. part-time work b. light duty work to accommodate medical limitations and/or restrictions c. assign the employee to duties that he/she can perform Don t deny the employee a placement except for the most compelling reasons. If you must deny placement of a medically approved, limited duty employee, you must document by memo the reason and forward to the HRO. Remember, the longer the person is out of work, the harder it is to get them back to work. You can reduce the claim by up to 30% if you get them back to work right away, even if its only light duty. It is the supervisor s responsibility to document any evidence of fraudulent or malingering claims. Ask questions, make detailed notes, and have witnesses write statements and contact the HRO. Your role in reducing compensation costs is critical. The AF has an Early Intervention Case Management Program which is designed to assist NAFI s and the injured employee following a work-related injury. If an employee has lost time, a Nurse Case Manager (NCM) may be assigned. 4

5 IN A NUT SHELL Upon notification of an on the job injury or illness, supervisor will issue to the injured employee the following: Form LS-555-Privacy Act of 1974 Notice; Employee Information Sheet, Form LS-1, Request for Examination and/or Treatment (with Part A, items 1-13 completed); Form LS-201, Notice of Employee s Injury or Death; and AF Form 786, Patient s Authorization for Release of Medical Information.

If the claim in questionable, check item 7b on LS-1. For the initial assessment/treatment, employees may seek to use any medical treatment facility to include the base clinic, or a doctor of their choice. Any subsequent medical treating physician will remain the treating physician for the life of the injury. The injured employee has the option to seek medical attention. If the employee refused medical attention, have the employee provide a written statement indicating they refuse medical attention at this time (may be written on LS-1). This does not mean the employee may not seek medical attention at a later date. Employee may use Form LS-204 for to seek future medical attention related to the same on the job injury.
