Sacked banker found compromising picture of manager on work laptop

This is safe for work.

A London-based IT worker found a sexually explicit photograph of a senior manager on a work computer, an employment tribunal heard.

The Telegraph reports that Claudio Pallone, 51, said he discovered the image on a laptop of the colleague, known only as AB, who was pictured naked, in front of a mirror.

He made the allegations at a hearing where he is taking a case against former employees Banco do Brasil.

He claims he lost his job as information security officer at the company’s office after exposing a series of security breaches which left the firm at risk of money laundering and fraud.

The day after he was told his contract was not going to be renewed, the married father-of-one sent a warning to colleagues at the banking giant not to misuse work equipment.

It followed the earlier discovery of the explicit image of his colleague. Pallone said it was one of his tasks for the day to issue the email alert. It did not name the staff member involved.

However, the bank’s senior managers reacted angrily to the message, placed Pallone on immediate gardening leave, and banned him from returning to the firm’s offices in the City of London.

The bank denies the allegations and claims Pallone's contract ended because the firm was trying to cut costs and IT problems had subsided.
