For over a decade the Harris Federal Law Firm has been helping federal employees with workers compensation claims, federal disability retirement cases and the resolution of employment disputes. We often see federal employees have received little training in what benefits they deserve and how those benefits interact. For example, very few are aware if they are entitled to a schedule award – or that they can’t receive regular workers’ compensation and a schedule award at the same time.
Our job is to assist them in receiving the fullest extent of their benefits – but the employee must have an opportunity to learn about their rights and options in order to make an educated decision on whether or not they want to pursue the benefits. Generally, few agencies allow federal employees administrative time to participate in training. It is also often cost-prohibitive to participate in face-to-face training.
Therefore, we decided to present FREE federal employee webinars! The webinars provide a complementary alternative to face-to-face training, so you can learn more about federal disability retirement without leaving the comfort of your own home. Our webinars are also interactive, and allow you to ask questions along the way.

Understanding the nuanced differences between federal benefits can be difficult and can have a huge impact on your long-term stability. In this webinar, senior attorney Brad Harris will outline the differences between Federal Disability Retirement and Social Security Disability, and help you understand how these benefits can help you set up long-term stability in your life.
In this webinar we will discuss how Reasonable Accommodations affects Federal Disability Retirement. We will give an overview of what is considered a reasonable accommodation under OPM and explain the process of requesting a reasonable accommodation.
Many federal employees do not know about an additional benefit that is available to them through their employment. Federal Disability Retirement can be an extremely valuable option if an injured employee is having trouble continuing their federal job. Those few federal workers who do know about the benefit rarely understand exactly how the benefit applies to them, or what they would receive. This webinar will give a comprehensive overview of what Federal Disability Retirement is and how it can benefit you.
