Spurling; Order Prohibiting Involvement in NRCLicensed Activities FirstEnergy Nuclear Operating Company (FENOC or Licensee) holds License No. NPF–58 issued by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or Commission) pursuant to 10 CFR part 50 on November 13, 1986. The license authorizes the operation of the Perry Nuclear Power Plant (Perry) in accordance with the conditions specified therein. The facility is located on the Licensee’s site near Painesville, Ohio. From November 8, 1999, to May 1, 2000, Jack J. Spurling was employed as the Site Superintendent for the Williams Power Corporation (Williams Power), a contractor of the Licensee at Perry. The NRC Office of Investigations (OI) conducted an investigation to determine if an individual previously employed as a painter by Williams Power at Perry was laid off in violation of 10 CFR 50.7 on March 9, 2000, because the painter had participated in protected activities (OI Report No. 3–2000–025). Three painters employed by Williams Power met with a FENOC maintenance supervisor at Perry on March 8, 2000, to discuss their concerns about directions given by the Williams Power general foreman to omit steps, including preparing the surface prior to applying paint, required by a licensee painting procedure for the Perry Fuel Handling Building. As a result, the FENOC maintenance supervisor prepared a condition report on March 9, 2000. The FENOC maintenance supervisor made Mr. Spurling aware of the contents of the condition report and informed Mr. Spurling that the painters wanted to meet with the Perry Ombudsman to discuss their concerns. Mr. Spurling then arranged for the painters to meet with the Ombudsman. Subsequently, upon the painters’ return to the Williams Power work area after their March 9, 2000, meeting with the Ombudsman, Mr. Spurling told the painters that they could volunteer for a layoff or be terminated. As a result, two painters volunteered for layoff and the third was forced to resign. Final payroll checks for the painters had been prepared by Mr. Spurling that morning before they met with the Ombudsman, indicating that the layoff was planned by Mr. Spurling in retaliation for the painters’ contacts with the FENOC maintenance supervisor and the Perry Ombudsman. PO 00000 Frm 00093 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The painters’ contacts with the FENOC maintenance supervisor on March 8, 2000, and the Perry Ombudsman on March 9, 2000, to discuss their concerns about adherence to procedures by Williams Power were activities protected by 10 CFR 50.7. These protected activities were a contributing factor to the threats to the three painters to accept layoff or be terminated, to the layoff of two painters and to the constructive discharge (forced resignation) of the third painter. Therefore, a Notice of Violation was issued on this date to Williams Power Corporation (EA–082) and a Notice of Violation and Proposed Civil Penalty— $55,000 was issued on this date to the licensee (EA–01–083), both for an apparent violation of 10 CFR 50.7, ‘‘Employee Protection.’’ During its investigation, OI requested that Williams Power provide copies of the termination paychecks which Mr. Spurling had prepared for the painters. Williams Power produced two checks dated March 9, 2000, and a third check dated March 10, 2000. During a sworn transcribed interview with OI on November 2, 2000, and at the predecisional enforcement conference (PEC) on September 26, 2001, Mr. Spurling denied that he had selected the three painters for layoff because they had contacted FENOC with their concerns. Mr. Spurling also denied that he had prepared any termination paychecks prior to asking the painters to volunteer for layoff, and denied that he had destroyed one of the paychecks. Following the PEC of September 26, 2001, the Williams Power Assistant General Counsel questioned Mr. Spurling about the termination paychecks. Mr. Spurling admitted that he had prepared the termination paychecks on March 9, 2000, prior to asking the painters to volunteer for layoff. Mr. Spurling also admitted that he destroyed a check when one of the painters did not volunteer for layoff. The Assistant General Counsel for Williams Power initiated an inquiry and determined from payroll records that a third check was prepared on March 9, 2000, and located a witness who had been contacted by Mr. Spurling and was told by Mr. Spurling to delete the third check from the payroll record. In a second interview with OI on January 12, 2002, Mr. Spurling verified that he had prepared termination paychecks prior to asking the painters to volunteer for layoff and that he had destroyed a check when one of the painters did not volunteer for layoff.
