July 30 (Bloomberg) -- Toyota Motor Co., the world’s best-selling automaker in the first half of the year, is threatening to stop investing in Turkey after a number of employees filed lawsuits against it, the Star reported, without saying where it got the information.

Toyota sent a delegation to meet with officials from Turkey’s Labor Ministry after an employee won 150,000 liras ($83,000) in compensation from a Turkish court for loss of feeling in a finger, prompting about 15 other employees to pursue cases against the company, the Istanbul-based newspaper said.

Toyota had earlier been accused of discriminating against employees who practice the Islamic faith, according to Star.
