Q: Can someone who is on Light duty work Overtime that results in members to lose on Overtime?
A: After researching the questions, there is nothing in the Federal Compensation Act that I could find. But the Master Agreement in Article 18, Hours of Work, Section P # 1, on Page 43 it states, when management determines that it is necessary to pay overtime for positions/assignments normally filled by bargaining unit employees, qualified employees in the bargaining unit will receive first consideration for these overtime assignments. The key word is qualified. Anyone on Light duty is not qualified and that is the reason he or she is on is Light duty. So if you are having this problem, a good way to stop it is by filling a Grievance on Violation of contract if the agency doesn't stop.
Q: Can someone travel if he is on OWCP (Due to Job Injury) with limitations, such as no inmate contact or no Heavy lifting etc?
A: Yes if you are on OWCP Meaning you are filing CA 7 every two weeks and getting paid by (DOL) Dept. of Labor. You can go anywhere as long you are not going on a trip where you are receiving.
Example: If you go and conduct a speech/ or contract work and get paid for it then you must report it to OWCP. It is better that you don't because it will disturb your payment from DOL
