Description

Cited as: 54 ECAB. Includes "Digest and Decisions of the Employees' Compensation Appeals Board" and "Decisions of the Employees' Compensation Appeals Board.

The Employee’s Compensation Appeals Board was established in 1946 as a three-member, quasi-judicial body within the Federal Security Agency in accordance with the provisions of Reorganization Plan No. 19 of 1946, effective July 16, 1946.  Reorganization Plan No. 19 of 1950, effective May 24, 1950, provided for the transfer of the Board and its functions to the Department of Labor, and the transfer to the Secretary of Labor of the functions of the Federal Security Administrator with respect to the Board.  The Board has authority to hear and, subject to applicable law, make final decisions on appeals taken from determinations and awards with respect to claims of employees of the Federal Government arising out of the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act of 1916, as amended and extended.  The Board’s jurisdiction is strictly appellate in nature and extends to questions of law and fact and to questions concerning the exercise of discretion.  The review is made upon the case record.  New evidence is neither received nor considered by the Board.  The administration of the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act is the responsibility of the Office of Worker’s Compensation Programs which, prior to July 2, 1974, was known as the Bureau of Federal Employees’ Compensation.

This volume contains only those cases having precedential value.  Routine cases which follow earlier established precedents have not been included.  Likewise, most of the Board’s orders (decisions issued without opinions) have been excluded.  The majority of these orders set aside the decision of the Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs in the particular case and remanded it, either on the Board’s own initiative or on motion of the Office, to correct legal or procedural error or for further development from an evidentiary standpoint. 

Audience

Employees seeking compensation for various reasons, including injury, will find this publication useful to see the legal precedent that has been set for the variety of case types listed in the Table of Contents.  Law students researching cases, and lawyers who work for employee compensation, will also find this helpful in preparing cases and citing legal precedent.
