The Non-Appropriated Funds Instrumentalities Act
Established on 1952, The Non-Appropriated Funds Instrumentalities Act is a Federal act that extends the benefits of the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA) to protect civilian employees working for the U.S. military on stateside military bases. This includes those working in military department support organizations, in duty-free stores, in food prep/service, as well as in cleaning/sanitation. As a result, the Act essentially provides no-fault workers compensation benefits to these employee segments. These claims are as intricate and tedious as normal LHWCA claims, and you will likely benefit from hiring an experienced attorney. There are no upfront costs or fees – no recovery, no fees.
