Man Gets 9 Years in Prison After Nuclear Bunker Project Ends in Worker’s Fiery Death

Man Gets 9 Years in Prison After Nuclear Bunker Project Ends in Worker’s Fiery Death A Maryland man was sentenced Monday to nine years in prison after his secret project — the excavation of a nuclear bunker underneath his home — ended with the death of a worker he had hired to dig the tunnels. The man, Daniel L. Beckwitt, did not testify during his trial, in which he was convicted in April of second-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter. But he made emotional statements at his sentencing and apologized to the parents of Askia Khafra, the worker who died while digging the tunnels on Sept. 10, 2017. Mr. Khafra, 21, had been carving out hundreds of feet of passageways under Mr. Beckwitt’s home in Bethesda, Md.

In a harassment and discrimination case at the Workplace Relations Commission (WRC), Adjudication Officer, Eugene Hanly made the award chiefly as a result of the firm failing to inform the woman of the outcome of the disciplinary investigation into the manager’s conduct.

The firm suspended the manager and he immediately resigned his position after meeting with the firm’s Area Manager.

In the incident on 18 June 2018, the woman’s boss is alleged to have placed his hand on her chest, pulled up her top, patted her left breast and said, “we will cover them up for this meeting”.

The firm accepted vicarious liability in the case and Hanly found that the complainant “experienced a behaviour/conduct perpetrated by her immediate manager and witnessed by a colleague that she believed was unwarranted conduct which in her opinion violated her dignity and created an intimidating environment”.

He stated: “I find that sufficient evidence was produced to establish the presumption of discrimination.”

The woman made a number of efforts to find out the outcome of the investigation of her complaint from the firm.

The firm told her in one letter:

Unfortunately, I will not be in a position to discuss the outcome of these investigations with you.

Hanly stated that this was repeated a number of times “and I note that this caused considerable concern and unhappiness for the complainant”.

After further attempts to find out the outcome of the investigation, the woman told the firm: “I have heard nothing. This has caused me considerable distress and upset and has required me to seek medical advice”.

The firm would only say that the alleged perpetrator was no longer in the business and Hanly deemed this insufficient.

Hanly found that the complainant was entitled to find out the outcome of the investigation; was entitled to a decision on whether her complaint was upheld or not and was entitled to know what the outcome was, concerning her alleged harasser.

Hanly stated that he found that the fashion retailer has failed to address these matters and “as a consequence, I uphold her complaint of harassment and discrimination”.

The woman resigned from her post on 8 October 2018 and failed in a separate case of constructive dismissal against the company.
