RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Health Diagnostics Laboratory Inc., has laid off 42 workers at its Richmond operations.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch (https://bit.ly/1BXkolW ) reports that the company announced the layoffs on Thursday and confirmed a settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice.

The blood-testing company attributed the layoffs to a decision to refocus on its core mission of providing services to help fight heart disease and diabetes.

The company said the proposed settlement would include a five-year corporate integrity agreement. Details weren’t provided.

The company had said last July that it was cooperating in a federal investigation of reimbursement practices in the laboratory industry.

A Department of Justice spokeswoman told the newspaper that the agency couldn’t confirm a settlement.
