Whistleblower Files Retaliation Suit Against Medtronic

Whistleblower Files Retaliation Suit Against Medtronic

A former sales rep for Medtronics sued the company last week, alleging that she was fired for reporting violations of Medtronic's policies and of state and federal anti-fraud laws. During training, the plaintiff observed activities relating to Medtronic’s neurostimulation devices that violated Medtronic’s own rules, the False Claims Act, and the Texas Medicaid Fraud Prevention Act. After repeated attempts to report the violations, the plaintiff alleged that her supervisor retaliated with verbal harassment and physical intimidation, leading to an engineered firing in April of 2012.
