SEATTLE – The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is proposing a $160,500 civil penalty against the Parker Hannifin Corp. of Irvine, Calif., for allegedly violating drug and alcohol testing regulations.
The FAA alleges the aircraft repair station hired two people for safety-sensitive positions before conducting pre-employment drug tests and receiving verified negative test results. Additionally, the company transferred an employee into a safety-sensitive position before conducting such a test and receiving a negative result, the FAA alleges.
The FAA further alleges that six employees who performed safety-sensitive duties were not in Parker Hannifin’s random testing pool.
Parker Hannifin has until late December to respond to the allegations.
