Oracle faces whistleblower lawsuit over cloud accounting

Thursday 2 June 2016 | 10:20 CET | News
A former senior finance manager at Oracle has sued the company, claiming she was fired in retaliation for complaining about improper accounting practices in Oracle's cloud services business. In a complaint filed in US District Court in San Francisco, the former executive, Svetlana Blackburn, accused upper management of trying to push her to "fit square data into round holes" in order to make Oracle Cloud Services' results look better, Reuters reports. Oracle spokeswoman Deborah Hellinger said the company doesn't agree with the allegations and intends to "vigorously defend the matter".
