A former human resources vice president with Johnson & Johnson is suing the pharmaceutical giant, claiming she was fired because she is black and protested the disparate treatment of minorities, according to Law360.com. Francine Parham contends in a June 21 lawsuit in Middlesex County Superior Court that few African-Americans reached higher-level executive positions with J&J, which meant the New Brunswick-headquartered company had a difficult time retaining talented black employees, the report states. This “leaky bucket” syndrome was known at the highest levels of J&J, according to the suit.
