In our continuous effort to make the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA) more understandable and accessible, we launched a set of videos.
In this playlist, R. Hugh Stephens, Esq. clarifies the details of the Act. He first describes the historical circumstances which led to the Act’s passage in 2000 (effective July 1, 2001), and then continues his explanation of the Act to include various important aspects of the processes involved in the law’s implementation by the Department of Labor (DOL) as well as the types of cancer that are covered by the Act. He also clarifies some of the significant and more complicated details of the EEOICPA claims filing process.
These explanatory videos describe the operations at specific atomic weapons manufacturing facilities across the country.
