The filing adds to disclosure from the third-quarter report, when the bank said hiring practices were under review as related to compliance with the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. Monday’s document includes a new reference to compensation, in a passage that combines pay with hiring in a separate line item.
In the meantime, Bloomberg also reports that Goldman Sachs said it was named in a lawsuit alleging dealers and brokers conspired to preclude exchange trading of interest-rate swaps.
The case was filed November 25 and is seeking class-action status, the firm said Monday in its annual regulatory filing. A complaint filed in New York federal court by Chicago’s public school teachers’ pension fund named Goldman Sachs as a defendant along with Citigroup, Bank of America and other major banks.
