Are there greater problems today than there were before? Are there more bad people; is there a greater number of sexual predators; do people on the whole act with greater aberrance than in times past?
Of course, much of such questions depends upon what you define as “before” — as in, what historical time period, which civilization as the comparative reference point, and are we applying the same acts committed (i.e., apples-to-apples), etc.
In the modern age, is there more stress in the workplace? Are psychiatric conditions worse and more prevalent because of the increase in workplace hostility and stressful conditions? Is there a better way to keep and retain productive members of the workforce — i.e., to accommodate them — than to provide them with a disability annuity?
In the modern age, the level of workplace stress has, indeed, seemingly increased, to a rate and frequency where devastation of lives occurs in greater numbers than before. Before — as in, when? Such a question is an irrelevancy. The modern age has no equivalence, and therefore no comparative analysis can be wrought. Instead, the proper focus is to fight for one’s rights and one’s benefits.
For Federal employees and U.S. Postal workers who suffer from a medical condition such that the medical condition prevents the Federal or Postal worker from performing one or more of the essential elements of one’s Federal or Postal position, contact a qualified OPM Lawyer who specializes in Federal Disability Retirement Law.
For, in the modern age, there exist laws which provide for alleviation from the medical devastation wrought by society’s undue workplace stresses, and asserting one’s disability rights is fortunately a benefit available in the modern age.
