Novartis pays $99 million in overtime case

Former sales reps denied overtime despite working more than 40 hours a week

Novartis AG has agreed to pay $99 million to settle a case that involves 7,000 plaintiffs.

In 2006, a group of Novartis sales representatives complained the company refused to pay them overtime, despite the fact that they worked more than 40 hours per week, and they filed suit. The settlement, which U.S. District Judge Paul Cotty granted preliminary approval of Tuesday, puts an end to a case that was six years in the making.
