Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA)
Congress passed the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA), effective July 1, 2001, to provide compensation to workers and their survivors who have developed certain illnesses as a result of exposure to radioactive and toxic substances while employed by the Department of Energy or one of its contractors or subcontractors in the nuclear weapons industry. Many workers were exposed to radiation and other illnesses while engaged in the manufacture and testing of atomic weapons or in the handling of wastes generated during their production.
