Ex-banker awarded $4.7m for destroyed career

Money Roll

Falsely accused.

A high-flying banker falsely branded ‘Crazy Miss Cokehead’ has been awarded £3.2m ($4.7m) after her career was destroyed by sexist taunts.

The Daily Mail reports that Cambridge graduate Svetlana Lokhova was driven to a breakdown by a campaign of sexual harassment by bullying male colleagues, an employment tribunal found.

Workmates falsely accused her of being a cocaine user, dubbed her ‘Miss Bonkers’, and said she was hired by the bank only because of her looks.

Miss Lokhova, 33, the only woman in her team, won her legal claim that she was the victim of sexual harassment and unfairly forced to leave her £750,000-a-year role.
