Company To Appeal Whistleblower Case

KSAL StaffMay 21, 2013

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – An engineering firm says it plans to appeal a decision by federal regulators in favor of a whistleblower allegedly fired for reporting unsafe conditions at a nuclear power plant in eastern Kansas.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration found Georgia based Enercon Services violated whistleblower protections when it retaliated against an engineer for raising concerns during construction work at the Wolf Creek plant in Burlington.

OSHA acting regional administrator Marcia Drumm said in a news release Monday that professionals in the nuclear power industry have a right and responsibility to report safety related concerns.

Enercon said in an e-mail Monday it welcomes the opportunity for a full hearing to establish the firing was for legitimate reasons and not for reporting safety concerns. The company provides engineering support services to nuclear plants nationwide.
