HSBC accused of 'retaliation' after allegedly terminating employee

Exit Sign

Michael Picarella, an HSBC senior vice president who’s suing the bank for retaliation after pointing out harassment against top brass, has left the bank, The New York Post has learned.

The newspaper reports that Picarella’s departure last week came after continuing disintegration of his relationship with the bank over a lawsuit filed in June.

'HSBC has further retaliated against Plaintiff by terminating his employment', according to a letter filed Monday afternoon in Manhattan federal court.

Last week, the 47-year-old Picarella filed to amend his lawsuit against the bank after being denied a bonus.

Since December, he had been kept from entering the bank’s Midtown office where he worked and, later, was unable to access bank computer systems, The Post had earlier reported.
