Anyone know if this immunity is a site specific? Am interested in former
contractor employees from Operations and Test Command sites, specifically.

Immunity offered to depot workers
Saturday, October 7, 2000

Tom Sheehan
Dispatch Staff Reporter 

Former workers afraid to risk their pensions and prosecution if they talked
about job-related tasks that might have led to contamination at the old
Marion Engineering Depot and the nearby Scioto Ordnance Plant are safe,
federal officials said yesterday. 

The U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Ohio and the Army
Corps of Engineers have reached an understanding that workers will not be
prosecuted for activities that occurred before those Marion facilities

The former workers also will not risk federal pensions, corps spokesman
Todd Hornback said. 

"We had been told people were afraid if they came forward, their pensions
might be affected,'' Hornback said yesterday. 

He said the U.S. Office of Personnel Management has told the corps that
pensions would not be affected if former employees talk to authorized
government representatives.
