According to a news release, the company and Landow have been ordered to re-hire the employee and pay approximately $500,000 in back wages, interest, and compensatory damages. The findings follow an investigation by OSHA’s San Francisco Regional Office, which was initiated after receiving a complaint from the employee.
Landow and Bond Laboratories, formerly based in Solana Beach, allegedly terminated the complainant, an officer, for objecting to the manipulation of sales figures that misrepresented the company’s value to potential investors. OSHA determined the complainant repeatedly objected to this practice between March and October 2008, and the objections contributed to the decision to terminate the complainant.
