SEC Settles 1st Whistleblower Protection Case Against #KBR: Employees Can Now Testify Without Fear of Retribution

The Securities and Exchange Commission today announced the first enforcement action against a violation involving the use of restrictive language in employee confidentiality agreements. This language is prohibitive in the process of enforcing securities laws and makes whistleblowers reluctant to come forward even if they are given an award.
By requiring its employees and former employees to sign confidentiality agreements imposing pre-notification requirements before contacting the SEC, KBR potentially discouraged employees from reporting securities violations to us.
-Andrew J. Ceresney, Director of the SEC’s Division of Enforcement
KBR (NYSE: KBR) is an engineering firm based in Houston, Texas that is charged with violating Rule 21F-17.  KBR required witnesses in certain internal investigations interviews to sign confidentiality agreements. The agreements warned that they could face legal action or be fired for discussing matters without KBR's approval. This includes securities law violations which is in violation of Rule 21F-17. KBR  has agreed to pay $130,000 to settle the charges. The company also amended it's confidentiality agreements.

The order made no mention of any other violations against KBR or its employees, but perhaps this change in policy and language was needed before a whistleblower at the company would come forward.

If you have information about one of the cases the SEC is working on now you may be eligible for whistleblower award too. There are currently 35 cases that the SEC is seeking information on. You can read more about these cases on the Whistleblower website. Some of the cases are also listed below.
