The CA-17: Describing your work duties and restrictions

“The Postal Service has an obligation to make every effort to find work for compensably injured workers. That obligation can only be enforced when compensably injured workers provide sufficient medical evidence detailing which specific work duties they are capable of performing. While many doctors have their own forms for describing work restrictions, compensably injured workers should provide their doctors with a properly filled out OWCP Form CA-17, Duty Status Report.”
