JPMorgan employee said accidentally sent inappropriate email - to HR

Email Simon Stratford

'Immature, irresponsible and unreliable'.

A JP Morgan banker has been caught up in a federal inquiry after he allegedly managed to avoid being sacked for his 'very poor' and 'irresponsible' behavior at work - because his father is China's commerce minister.

The Daily Mail reports that Gao Jue, the son of Gao Hucheng, reportedly performed 'very poorly' in his job interviews, failed to renew his work visa and was described by a senior banker as 'immature, irresponsible and unreliable'.

On one occasion, the 32-year-old even accidentally sent a sexually explicit email to a human-resources employee at the bank and was given a warning, according to internal emails.

But despite his behavior, he was hired by JP Morgan, kept on during massive job cuts and could have later been offered another position if he had replied to the firm's queries.

The reason for this, according to emails obtained by the Wall Street Journal, was because his father had promised to 'go extra miles' for the multinational bank if it did not fire his son.
