Two more bankers joined a list of currency traders suing their employers in London following $10 billion in fines dished out by regulators in the wake of the foreign-exchange scandal.
Patrice Ktorza, an executive director in FX sales who left JPMorgan Chase & Co. in August, is suing the bank for unfair dismissal, according to a court filing. Nihel Bensenane, who still works in foreign-exchange sales at Citigroup Inc., is suing in a dispute over pay and sexual discrimination, the records state.
The pair of salespeople add to a group of employees on foreign exchange desks who have sued banks in recent months following widespread firings and internal disputes in the wake of the foreign-exchange scandal. Bensenane is the fourth employee to take Citigroup to court after former traders Perry Stimpson, Carly McWilliams and Robert Hoodless sued.
