Bloomberg News reports that Daniel Stalker, a director on the foreign exchange trading desk in London, filed a case for unfair dismissal, claiming he was fired for whistle-blowing. A closed-door mediation hearing took place at central London employment tribunal Friday.
Stalker joins at least seven other foreign exchange traders to sue their former employers following widespread dismissals during the benchmark-rigging scandals. Cases involving Citigroup, HSBC, Lloyds Banking Group and Royal Bank of Scotland are underway or pending.
