Schering-Plough Corp. Faces Whistleblower Lawsuit

Four former employees of Schering-Plough Corp.’s Argentinian subsidiary have been given the green-light to proceed with a lawsuit claiming they were fired for complaining about illegal marketing practices.  The suit was initially thrown out by a lower court, but a three-judge panel in a New Jersey Court is allowing the suit to go forward.

The plaintiffs claim that Schering-Plough Corp. fired them for having blown the whistle on the company’s illegal marketing practices, which included bribing doctors to boost drug sales.  Additionally, the defendents claim that the day they were fired they were coerced into signing settlement agreements releasing Schering-Plough from any future liability.  Failure to sign would have resulted in no severance pay.
