Ames Laboratory has been Granted an Additional Special Exposure Cohort (SEC) Class

On February 1, 2018, the Acting Secretary of HHS designated the following class for addition to the SEC in a report to Congress:

All employees of the Department of Energy, its predecessor agencies, and their contractors and subcontractors who worked in any area of the Ames Laboratory in Ames, Iowa during the period of January 1, 1971 through December 31, 1989, for a number of work days aggregating at least 250 work days, occurring solely under this employment, or in combination with work days within the parameters established for one or more other classes of employees in the Special Exposure Cohort… If the employee does not have 250 work days at the Ames Laboratory during the period noted, the case file must be reviewed to determine if additional days in the SEC can be found by combining days from employment meeting the criteria for other SEC classes and aggregating them together to meet the 250-workday requirement.*
