Whistleblower Suit Against Schering-Plough

This blog is starting to look like a pharma-business-ethics blog. I’m not doing this on purpose.

See the AP story at Yahoo.com: NJ Court Allows Whistleblower Suit Against Schering-Plough

Four former employees of drug maker Schering-Plough Corp.’s Argentinean subsidiary can sue over being fired allegedly for complaining about illegal marketing practices, including bribing doctors to boost drug sales, a New Jersey court ruled Friday.

The four longtime employees at Laboratorios Essex SA allege they were abruptly terminated after disclosing “widespread unethical and illegal marketing and sales practices.” They claim Schering-Plough engaged in “the pervasive and routine bribing of doctors and public officials” to boost sales of the company’s cancer and infection-fighting drugs in Argentina.
