THEFT AND MISUSE OF COMPANY RESOURCES
On October 3, 2016, an Amtrak track inspector retired pending administrative charges for theft and misuse of company resources. These charges resulted from our investigation, which concluded this employee was involved in scrap metal theft, misuse of company resources, falsifying a safety job briefing form, covering up an operating rules violation, and making false statements to our agents. We initiated this investigation in response to allegations of numerous policy violations by the track inspector’s former manager, an Amtrak supervisor (who has since been terminated). These allegations included the concealment of a serious operating rules violation committed by the track inspector.
