Fired Worker’s Suit Raises Questions on Nuclear Plant’s Safety

The Chicago Tribune wrote about Matt Simon, a Bernabei & Wachtel client, who was a guard and weapons trainer at a nuclear power plant in Illinois. Mr. Simon was fired after he complained about security problems, including filing false security reports, failing to provide proper training and equipment to the guards, and pressuring the supervisors to qualify trainees in order to keep the failure rates low. The case is now pending before the U.S. Department of Labor.
