An ex-Citigroup Inc. banker is fighting to get his job back after he alleged that he was fired for blowing the whistle on a “toxic” culture at the bank’s Dubai office.

Faycal Dahab, a former sales director for the Middle East and North Africa, told a London employment tribunal how sales employees were told by a senior banker they should be grateful as “they earn more than employees of Starbucks,” according to court documents prepared by Dahab’s lawyers.
