TBZ-0063 - In the Matter of Richard L. Urie

This Decision concerns a Complaint filed by Richard L. Urie (hereinafter referred to as “Mr. Urie” or “the Complainant”) against Los Alamos National Laboratory (hereinafter referred to as “LANL” or “the Respondent”), his former employer, under the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Contractor Employee Protection Program regulations found at 10 C.F.R. Part 708. At all times relevant to this proceeding, LANL was a DOE contractor operating in Los Alamos, New Mexico. It is the Complainant’s contention that during his employment with LANL, he engaged in protected activity and, as a consequence, suffered reprisals by LANL. Among the remedies that the Complainant seeks are reinstatement, back pay, and reimbursement for legal and other expenses. As discussed below, I have concluded that Mr. Urie is not entitled to the relief that he seeks.
