TBA-0105 - In the Matter of Colleen Monk

This Decision considers an Appeal of an Initial Agency Decision (IAD) issued on January 20, 2009, involving a complaint of retaliation filed by Colleen Monk (“Monk,” or “Complainant”) against Washington TRU Solutions, VJ Technologies, and Mobile Characterization Services (hereinafter referred to individually as “WTS,” “VJT,” and “MCS,” respectively, or collectively as “the Respondents”), under the Department of Energy (DOE) Contractor Employee Protection Program, 10 C.F.R. Part 708. In her complaint, Monk alleged that, during her employment with VJT, she engaged in protected activity and, as a consequence, suffered reprisals by the Respondents. In the IAD, an Office of Hearings and Appeals (OHA) Hearing Officer granted a Motion for Summary Judgment filed by the Respondents, and denied Monk’s complaint. Monk appealed the decision. As set forth below, the Appeal is denied.
