This Decision concerns a Complaint filed by Arun K. Dutta (hereinafter referred to as “Mr. Dutta” or “the Complainant”) against Parsons Infrastructure and Technology Group, Inc. (hereinafter referred to as “Parsons” 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, Parsons was a DOE contractor operating in Aiken, South Carolina. It is the Complainant’s contention that during his employment with Parsons, he engaged in protected activity and, as a consequence, suffered reprisals by Parsons. 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. Dutta is not entitled to the relief that he seeks.
