Ex-Citi exec sues firm claiming whistleblowing mistreatment

Citi Building Canary Wharf

Marco Arosio, a former executive at Citigroup, sued the bank for unfair dismissal, according to filings from a London employment tribunal.

Bloomberg News reports that the complaint by Arosio, who worked in rates trading and structuring according to his LinkedIn page, alleges his firing was related to whistle-blowing.

Additional details weren’t available from the court other than that hearings are scheduled for the case in mid-May.

Several Citigroup traders who lost their jobs amid probes into rate rigging and other misconduct have sued the bank in London’s specialist employment tribunals, where judges can award unlimited damages in cases of discrimination or mistreatment of whistle-blowers.
