Nc, (PressExposure) June 03, 2009 -- North Carolina Worker's Compensation was enacted in 1929, where a business with more than three employees was covered by benefits for "injuries incurred during the course and scope of his or her employment". This now includes firefighters that have been diagnosed with cancer, because of the exposure to toxins encountered in the nature of their forced exposure in the course of their work.
