This Initial Agency Decision involves a whistleblower complaint filed by Dr. David L. Moses (“Moses” or “the complainant”) under the Department of Energy (DOE) Contractor Employee Protection Program, 10 C.F.R. Part 708. The complainant was an employee of UT-Battelle, LLC, the firm employed by DOE to manage and operate the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), where he was employed as a Senior Program Manager for ORNL’s Nuclear Nonproliferation Program until May 2007. On February 23, 2007, he filed a complaint of retaliation against UT-Battelle with the DOE Office of Employee Concerns. In his complaint, Moses contends that he made certain disclosures to officials of UT-Battelle and DOE and that UT-Battelle retaliated against him in response to these disclosures. The complainant seeks monetary damages based upon his failure to receive a salary increase and his subsequent loss of employment.
