The White House has long touted the Northwell factory as a model of job creation.
But according to Northwell’s former chief financial officer, the company is being “dismissed for failing to meet the minimum wage requirements,” according to The Wall Street Journal.
“I’m a lifelong employee of Northwell, but we’re now trying to find a way to get the word out,” John Deasy told the paper.
Northwell’s CEO, John T. Hock, is reportedly trying to move forward with an expansion plan that would involve a large new facility that would house Northwell factories and offices.
“This is just one more step in the journey,” Hock told the Journal.
“We’re making significant progress, and we are on track to be in the market in the next six to 12 months.”
A spokesperson for Hock did not immediately respond to Business Insider’s request for comment.
