Only 10,000 Out of 800,000 Furloughed Federal Employees Have Applied for Workman’s Comp Must Be Repaid


We hear much about so many furloughed federal employees strapped for cash during the shutdown, yet only about 2% of them have applied for workman’s compensation, either because they’re confident the shutdown will end soon or that they’d have to repay the workmen’s comp money when they would receive their backpay upon the shutdown’s end, either way, very little demand for interim money.
