Fired Hanford nuclear whistle-blower who raised safety concerns settles for $4.1 million
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Lawyers for a whistle-blower on the Hanford Nuclear Reservation say he has reached a $4.1 million settlement with his former employer. Walter Tamosaitis was a former manager at Hanford's Waste Treatment Plant, where he worked for URS Inc., which is now known as AECOM. He was removed from his position in 2010 after raising safety concerns about the construction of the giant plant. He was eventually fired in 2013.
