VBH-0068 - In the Matter of Ronald D. White

This Decision involves a complaint filed by Ronald D. White (White or “Complainant”) under the Department of Energy (DOE) Contractor Employee Protection Program, codified at 10 C.F.R. Part 708. Complainant is a former employee of a DOE contractor, Midwest Research Institute (the contractor or MRI), the management and operating contractor of DOE’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), located in Golden, Colorado. According to White, the contractor made him the subject of reprisals because he made protected disclosures to DOE and the contractor in January 1999 and May 2000. In his complaint, White alleges that the contractor then took negative personnel actions against him, culminating in his dismissal in August 2000. On the basis of the hearing that was conducted and the record before me, I have concluded that White is not entitled to relief under 10 C.F.R. Part 708.
