Attorney Leah Bachmeyer-Kille Wins WILG Scholarship

Sep 21, 2015

Harris Federal Law Firm is proud to announce that associate attorney Leah Bachmeyer-Kille has been selected by the Workers Injury Law and Advocacy Group’s Executive Committee to be the recipient of it 2015 WILG scholarship.  This program enables an attorney with less than 15 years in practice to attend the WILG Annual Convention from October 2-4 in Chicago, Illinois. Additional benefits of the scholarship include opportunities to be involved in WILG leadership for the year, write for Workers’ First Watch Magazine and be recognized throughout the organization.

Ms. Bachmeyer-Kille will also be a presenting speaker at the WILG Annual Convention. The title of her presentation is “Interaction Between Employment Cases and FECA”. She will be educating representatives of OWCP claimants on interactions that occur between the OWCP, MSPB, and EEOC when a federal worker has an approved workers’ comp claim with OWCP but might also have other employment issues. These are three distinct federal agencies, but overlap can and does occur and can often be confusing for both the employee and their workers’ comp representative. Her presentation gives a general overview of what the MSPB and EEOC do when there is possible overlap with OWCP and shows few examples of how a federal workers’ comp representative might assist the employee to ensure the OWCP benefits remain intact.
