- Amendments enacted on December 28, 2001 applied to claimant’s case even though she filed her claim prior to the enactment of the amendments. Claimant’s argument that the amendments should not be applied retroactively was contrary to clear language of the amendments. EEOICPA Fin. Dec. No. 9855-2002 (Dep’t of Labor, August 26, 2002).
- EEOICPA is not a “classic” type of workers’ compensation statute because the monetary benefits it provides are not in the nature of wage-replacement benefits. EEOICPA Fin. Dec. No. 37038-2003 (Dep’t of Labor, November 7, 2007).
