The federal program that establishes workers' compensation for nonmilitary federal government employees is known by the acronym:FECA
Permanent and Stationary
a phrase used when a workers' compensation patient's condition has become stabilized and no further improvement, or worsening, is expected
an illness or injury which is expected to continue for the lifetime of the injured worker that to some extent affects his earning capacity
Second Injury Fund
Special funds set up by each state to pay all or part of the compensation required when a partially disabled employee suffers a subsequent inquiry. Because the compound effect of two injuries can be greater than the effect of the same two injuries in isolation, employers might be reluctant to hire the handicapped if they had to bear the full burden for a second injury. Second injury funds relieve employers of some of this burden
Worker's Compensation Insurance
A state or federal plan that covers medical care and other benefits for employees who suffer accidental injury or become ill as a result of employment.
