UBS France bullied a former worker who said she had refused to destroy documents that might have been of interest to tax evasion investigators, a Paris labour tribunal ruled on Thursday.
Reuters reports that the bank denied any bullying of the ex-employee, Stephanie Gibaud, and said the dispute between Gibaud and her boss was a simple misunderstanding.
The labour tribunal, which has no connection to ongoing investigations into UBS over whether it helped tax dodgers, said however that the 'alleged psychological bullying has been established'.
It ordered the bank to pay damages and interest of $33,034.50 to Gibaud.
