U.S. ex rel. Craddock v. Boeing (Improper Labor Charges)

Boeing paid $23 million to resolve allegations that it submitted false claims for labor charges on maintenance contracts with the Air Force for the C-17 Globemaster aircraft at its San Antonio, Texas facility. The government alleged the company knowingly and improperly billed a variety of labor costs in violation of applicable contract requirements, including for the time mechanics spent at meetings not directly related to the contracts. In October 2015, Boeing paid the government $18 million to settle allegations that it improperly charged labor costs on C-17 maintenance contracts at its Long Beach, California, facility (see Boeing instance, "U.S. ex rel. Webb v. Boeing (Improper Labor Charges) ").
