Barclays Plc General Counsel Bob Hoyt improperly used a copy of an interview given by Richard Boath in a criminal investigation to fire the executive, Boath’s lawyer told a London employment tribunal Friday.
“Part of our case is that Mr. Hoyt, the bank’s general counsel, was given a copy of the transcript to use for the criminal process and used it for another purpose -- to fire Mr. Boath,” Jonathan Cohen said.
