Former workers at Concord nuclear ammunition site may be entitled to compensation for cancer

The federal government says former employees of Nuclear Metals Inc. in Concord may be eligible for compensation and medical benefits if they’ve suffered certain kinds of cancer.

The Labor Department says in a press release that employees who worked for Nuclear Metals, or a subsequent owner, at the facility from Oct. 29, 1958 through Dec. 31, 1979 for a certain period of time and suffered from one of 22 cancers may “receive a presumption of causation.”
