Banker sues Lloyds after he says he was pushed out


A one-time regulatory official at Lloyds Banking Group sued the bank over claims he was pushed out for blowing the whistle on corporate misconduct and suffered sex and disability discrimination.

Bloomberg News reports that Nemanja Eckert, the former head of regulation, risk and product governance in Lloyds’s global transaction banking division, had a closed-door hearing at a London employment court Monday, according to court records. The division focuses on cash management, payments and providing working capital for clients.

Dozens of bankers have come to London employment tribunals in recent months in the wake of scandals that have rocked the financial industry. Compensation at these courts is capped at about $98,000 unless claimants can prove they were victims of discrimination, or were fired for whistle-blowing.
