Former employees file lawsuit against Wells Fargo

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Two former Wells Fargo workers are suing the bank, saying they lost their jobs for doing the right thing.

They're seeking more than $2 billion in a class action lawsuit. It's open to California workers who were fired or demoted for refusing to open fake bank and credit card accounts.

Officials say employees created the accounts over the last five years to satisfy sales goals, and customers ended up being charged.

The lawsuit is the latest headache for the bank which was recently fined $185 million for the scheme.
