A former chief medical officer for Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon Inc. has filed a retaliation and discrimination lawsuit, claiming the company fired him for voicing product safety concerns and pushing for product recalls. The former officer, age 52, also claimed age discrimination. The company denies the allegations.

The lawsuit will likely benefit the class-action, product-liability lawsuits currently filed against Johnson & Johnson. It also won’t hurt several class-action employee lawsuits currently brewing against Johnson & Johnson and other drug-making giants.

The pharmaceutical industry, like large insurers and retailers in recent years, faces a storm of employee lawsuits over failure to pay overtime, age discrimination and other unfair labor practices.
