The three-judge panel didn’t decide how much compensation she should receive.
Lokhova’s former manager at Sberbank CIB (UK), sent e-mails and made remarks behind her back that were 'offensive and derogatory, and often personal in nature', the judges said. The manager told the tribunal in April that although he regretted the comments, she had insulted him too. He has since resigned from the bank.
Lokhova is the second woman to win a sexual discrimination lawsuit in London this month, reversing a recent run of losses for claimants at the city’s employment tribunals. Isabel Sitz, a former stock broker at Oppenheimer Holdings’s European unit, won her claim for unfair treatment after managers discussed cutting her salary to the U.K. legal minimum of $10.85 an hour, then fired her.
Paul Marriott, a spokesman for Sberbank, said it was committed to equal opportunities. He said the tribunal had rejected 19 of the complaints made by Lokhova.
