Nestle will pay $2.2m to settle a long-running labour dispute, according to local media. The news follows a ruling from a Swiss court that in 2020 found that the company bullied a former employee-turned-whistleblower.

The former head of global food safety at the world’s largest food company, Yasmine Motarjemi, was subjected to harassment from 2006 until she was dismissed in 2010 because of her repeated warnings of lapses in processes around food safety.
