A government contractor is facing a Securities and Exchange Commission investigation following a whistle-blower's allegation of fraud involving a subcontractor paying off employees of the contractor to direct work its way. The contractor was awarded nearly $40 billion in federal contracts for work in Iraq and Afghanistan from 2002 to 2011. The federal judge in the whistle-blower's lawsuit ruled that confidentiality agreements required of the contractor's employees must be provided to the plaintiff's lawyers.
