Asadi v. GE Energy (Whistleblower Retaliation)
Khaled Asadi sued GE Energy alleging he was fired after raising concerns that the company’s hiring of a woman “closely associated with” Iraq’s senior deputy minister of electricity might have violated the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). Asadi, GE Energy’s former country executive for Iraq, believed the June 2010 hiring was done to curry favor for the company’s bid on a $250 million electricity contract with the Iraqi government.
