Framatome (EA-18-119)

On September 12, 2019, the NRC issued a Notice of Violation to Framatome (a Florida Power and Light Contractor) for a Severity Level III violation of NRC requirements involving employee protection. Framatome willfully discriminated against a Framatome contract employee for engaging in a protected activity in the Spring of 2017. Specifically, a Framatome contract employee who raised safety concerns during the St. Lucie Nuclear Plant (St. Lucie) refueling outage had a scheduled work assignment to Turkey Point Nuclear Plant cancelled by Framatome managers shortly after submitting a condition report at St. Lucie. The NRC determined that the actions of Framatome management were, in part, based on the contractor’s engagement in a protected activity.
