US Supreme Court Denies Certiorari and Thereby Leaves in Place Second Circuit Ruling That Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation Must Pay its Sales Representatives Overtime Compensation
Date:2/28/2011

nd, effective April 11, 2011, an employer who fails to pay its employees required overtime compensation is subject to increased penalties.  "We are sure Novartis is aware of this development and will act accordingly to bring the Novartis overtime litigation to a just and expeditious resolution."

SWH serves as Lead or co-Lead Counsel for four new and nearly identical wage and hour class action suits now pending against other pharmaceutical companies by their U.S. sales representatives, including suits against Pfizer, Roche, Merck and Abbott Laboratories. SWH also recently secured the largest jury award in the U.S. in an employment discrimination case in May 2010 when a jury returned a verdict of $253 million in compensatory and punitive damage against Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation.  Novartis subsequently settled that case for $175 million.
