Novo Nordisk sued by US reps for overtime

Novo Nordisk is facing a $70m lawsuit on behalf of its US drug sales force, claiming back payments for overtime.

The lawsuit, filed on behalf of two plaintiffs and a class of sales representatives, alleges that the Danish company is in breach of New York and federal law.

According to law firm Sanford Wittels & Heisler (SWH), the company requires its sales force to work more than 40 hours per week while incorrectly classifying them as ineligible for overtime payments.
