A Mechanical Inspector based in Beech Grove, Indiana, violated Amtrak policies by posting images and material characterized as disturbing, offensive, and inappropriate on a publicly available social media site. The former employee admitted to posting images which promoted Nazi ideologies on a social media website which identified him as a company employee. We also found that he was arrested in November 2016 for Driving Under the Influence and did not report his arrest to the company as required by company policy. The employee resigned on September 9, 2020, in lieu of a disciplinary hearing and is not eligible for rehire.
