VWA-0044 - In the Matter of Janet K. Benson

This Initial Agency Decision concerns a whistleblower complaint filed in 1994 by Janet K. Benson (the Complainant) against Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and the Regents of the University of California (UC) under the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Contractor Employee Protection Program, 10 C.F.R. Part 708 (Part 708). At all times relevant to this proceeding, UC managed and operated LLNL for the United States government under a contract between the Regents of UC and the DOE. It is the Complainant’s contention that during her employment with LLNL she engaged in activity protected by Part 708 and, as a consequence, suffered repeated reprisals by LLNL. (1) As discussed below, I have determined that the Complainant is not entitled to relief.
