Report: Employee wins maternity discrimination claim against Commerzbank

A judge in London has ruled in favor of a senior employee at Commerzbank AG who accused the German lender of gender and maternity discrimination, the Financial Times reported.

Senior compliance officer Jagruti Rajput had sued the bank before the Central London Employment Tribunal, claiming that she was discouraged from attending meetings during her maternity leave and could not send emails as her IT access was disabled.

Rajput also said she was passed over for promotion to head of markets in favor of an external male candidate during the first trimester of her pregnancy in December 2015, and was subjected to inappropriate remarks from colleagues when she returned from maternity leave.

Judge James Tayler reportedly concluded from a March hearing that she had not been fairly considered for the 2015 job. The ruling also noted that Rajput's efforts to remain closely involved with her work during her maternity leave was characterized by the bank's then-head of regional compliance of U.K. and Asia, Stephan Niermann, as an "unhealthy obsession with work," according to the Oct. 4 report.

The tribunal has been hearing submissions on how the German bank can remedy the situation, which includes offering Rajput future promotion opportunities or mentoring, the FT added.
