Commerzbank Exec Criticized for Work Obsession Wins London Suit

  • Manager wins her sex discrimination case for a second time
  • Commerzbank says it’s considering appropriate next steps

A female Commerzbank AG manager who was described by her manager has having an “unhealthy obsession with work” won her sex discrimination claim for a second time.

Jagruti Rajput, a compliance officer in the London office, was denied a fair opportunity to be promoted into a senior role, a decision “tainted” by her sex, a London tribunal ruled. Her manager then proceeded to downplay the fact that he’d treated a male colleague as the senior member of the team.
