Settlements reached in fraud case filed against 3 employees of former Hanford contactor


RICHLAND, Washington — Federal charges related to time card fraud are expected to be dropped after two former managers and a former supervisor of CH2M Hill Hanford Group agreed to pay civil fines.

The U.S. Department of Justice announced Wednesday that Ryan Dodd and Terrence Hissong have each paid fines of $44,000 to settle allegations.

Stephanie Livesey, a supervisor, agreed to pay a fine of $22,000.

The settlement agreements are not an admission of liability by any of the three defendants nor a concession by the federal government that its claims were not well-founded.

Dodd, Hissong and Livesey all say they did not knowingly aid in time card fraud.

The settlement followed a jury decision this fall that four other employees of CH2M Hill Hanford Group were not guilty of fraud charges.
