Tishman Construction Corporation agreed to pay more than $20 million to settle charges of overbilling customers over a ten-year period. Starting from at least 1999, Tishman Construction allegedly billed clients for large construction projects for hours never worked or for rates not agreed upon. Tishman Construction carried out the scheme by, among other things, padding hours of unworked or unnecessary “guaranteed” overtime; and submitting time for certain foremen who were actually absent for sick days, major holidays and vacation days. The government claims the company also billed clients at wage rates that exceeded those specified in the governing contracts. Whistleblower Insider
