HSBC faces sex discrimination and unfair dismissal claims

LONDON - A former financial adviser at HSBC has made a claim of sexual discrimination and unfair dismissal against the UK bank before the employment tribunal, maintaining she was forced out of her £200,000 salary job by a boys club and laddish culture at the bank.

Jacqueline Crawley worked for HSBC for 29 years and was the bank's top financial adviser for seven of those years, earning almost £1 million a year in commission for the bank. Crawley said her clients were transferred and files hidden from her. She was suspended in August 2006, and dismissed in November 2006, for gross misconduct arising from irregularities in her paperwork.

HSBC denies the allegations and says it will robustly defend its position.
