Washington State Helps Hanford Workers with a Win in Court

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, in August 2020, has upheld the presumption of compensability for workers at Hanford Nuclear Production Site.  This presumption was made into law by the Washington State legislature via HB 1723.

HB 1723 establishes a presumption that certain conditions and cancers to Hanford employees and contractors are occupational diseases, rebuttable only by clear and convincing evidence.

The United States challenged this law.  They lost.  Hanford workers are now more protected and can rely on the rebuttable presumption to help them prove their case.
