Nuclear Plant Whistle-Blower Retains Bernabei & Wachtel, PLLC

Bernabei & Wachtel, PLLC, is proud to represent a whistle-blower at the Peach Bottom Nuclear Plant in York County, Pennsylvania. Our client is a security guard at the Plant, where guards regularly work twelve-hour shifts and sixty hour weeks. During their shifts, even when waiting to go on rounds, the guards should be ready and alert. Our client repeatedly informed his supervisors that his fellow guards were sleeping on the job. His supervisors told him to be a team player, and did nothing to address the situation. Believing that he needed proof to get the situation to change, our client videotaped some of the napping security guards. An intermediary, assisting our client, notified the Nuclear Regulatory Commission of the guards, but still nothing changed until he contacted a local television news station.

Since then, the story has received significant coverage and more importantly has launched investigations into security at the nuclear plant. The video he took, and the original story.
