Ex-banker sues Deutsche Bank for discrimination and unfair dismissal

Deutsche Bank - Foyer Undersphere

A former senior Deutsche Bank employee is suing the bank for alleged sex discrimination and unfair dismissal after she was fired in the wake of the Libor-rigging scandal.

Reuters reports that Shivani Mathur, who was Deutsche's London-based global head of economic resources, has lodged her claim at the central London employment tribunal. Her hearing is due to begin on January 21, according to court records released on Wednesday.

Deutsche Bank agreed in April 2015 to pay $2.5bn to US and UK authorities for manipulation of the London interbank offered rate, known as Libor.

The bank was also ordered to fire seven employees as part of its settlement with the New York Department of Financial Services. Mathur was one of the seven.
