Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello: This is Phillipsesq. Welcome to JustAnswer! I am reviewing your post, and I will post my response very shortly. Thank you for your patience.
I am sorry to read about your difficulties.
If your agency's decision is final, then you need to file an appeal to the ECAB, the Employees’ Compensation Appeals Board. You can only appeal from a final decision. Otherwise, you need to file for reconsideration. The appeal must be filed within 180 days of the date of the final decision.
Goodluck with your case,
I do not have a case law to cite. So, I will opt out and give another Attorney the opportunity to further assist you.
I am a different Attorney and it will be my pleasure to assist you. Do you have a copy of the decision? We may be able to tell if it is final.
