On this page we present eleven videos produced here at Stephens & Stephens, LLP; an extension of our continuous efforts to make the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA) more easily understandable and accessible.
Immediately below is a playlist of the videos, in which R. Hugh Stephens, Esq. clarifies some of the finer points of the Act in a layman-friendly way. 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. The full list of videos in the playlist can be seen by clicking the menu icon in the upper left-hand corner of the video.
Below the explanatory videos can be found links to other videos gleaned from the Web concerning the operations at specific atomic weapons manufacturing facilities across the country.
