Federal Contractor Misconduct Database (FCMD)
Violation of the DOE Contractor Employee Protection Program (Hanford)
The Department of Energy fined Bechtel National $41,250 for laying off an employee who raised concerns in 2005 about the safety of the Hanford vitrification plant. The DOE Office of Enforcement later found that one of the employee’s concerns about the software that controls the plant was valid and issued a notice of violation to Bechtel about it in 2007 (see Bechtel instance, “Violations of Nuclear Safety Regulations (Hanford)”).
