Washington Post Reports Federal Contractor Gagged Employees

By Mary Jane Wilmoth on February 21, 2014Posted in False Claims / Qui Tam

Washington Post Reports: Largest DOD contractor in Iraq and Afghanistan gags employees from reporting fraud.

Employees who witness fraud threatened with termination if they told ANYONE outside of KBR of allegations.

A February 20, 2014, report by The Washington Post revealed that Halliburton/KBR, one of the nation’s largest government contractors, requires employees to sign confidentiality agreements, which violate federal whistleblower laws.  The confidentiality agreements in question bar employees who witness fraud from speaking to “ANYONE” outside of the company about their allegations, without “specific authorization” from the company’s general counsel. Employees are warned that “unauthorized disclosure of information” could result in “disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment.”

The National Whistleblower Center has issued an Action Alert calling on U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and Congress to investigate the possible cover up of False Claims Act violations by Halliburton/KBR on the $40 billion it received through government contracts to support the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Please join with the NWC and take action on this critical issue.

Take Action!
