GlaxoSmithKline sales representatives are demanding that the drugmaker reimburse them for bribes that were ordered by senior officials, Financial Times reported Wednesday.

Specifically, the employees assert that the drugmaker has withheld bonuses, threatened dismissal or refused to reimburse bribes that were ordered by senior managers to boost sales.
