Contractor Employee Protection Program (10 CFR Part 708)

On August 8, 2014, OHA issued a decision granting Mr. Earl Ballard’s Appeal of the Portsmouth/Paducah Project Office’s (PPPO) dismissal of his whistleblower complaint for lack of jurisdiction or other good cause.  OHA found that the reasons provided by PPPO for the dismissal, i.e., that Mr. Ballard had not proven that his alleged disclosure was a contributing factor to his dismissal, and that the Part 708 regulations were not applicable to an alleged protected disclosure made within the context of an investigation into Mr. Ballard’s actions, were not persuasive.  OHA therefore remanded the matter to PPPO for further processing pursuant to Part 708.  OHA Case No. WBU-14-0007
