Commerzbank sued by director who claims frat boy environment

Pointing The Finger

Commerzbank was sued by a director who said she was discriminated against in an environment more akin to a fraternity where she was isolated by discussions held in German, or at bars.

Bloomberg News reports that Jenus Fiouzi, a senior currency hedge fund saleswoman in London who also worked at several other banks, said in a witness statement that Commerzbank had a 'friends and mates culture' where there was 'a well entrenched guard of men'.

'On and off the trading floor, there was a German ‘boys club’ culture at the bank, which I would describe as akin to a college fraternity or ‘frat club,’' she said in the document submitted to a London employment tribunal Thursday.
