Workers' Compensation Program Tips for Timekeeping
Office of Workers' Compensation (OWCP) - Tips for Timekeeping
Any absence for medical care on the day of injury, due to that injury, is charged to "Other Leave – Administrative" with a corresponding note in the "remarks" section of the time sheet in the Web-based Total Cost Accounting System (WebTCAS). Thereafter, OWCP injury is charged.
The continuation of pay (COP) leave period starts with the day following the date of injury.
Each day or partial day of absence, after the date of injury, is charged to OWCP injury under the "leave" section of the time sheet in WebTCAS.
A diminishing record of the 45-calendar day limitation is to be maintained in the "remarks" section of the time sheet in WebTCAS.
Weekends are included in the 45-calendar day limitation.
