BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Female banker loses discrimination case


LONDON—The woman at the centre of a high profile sex discrimination case against a leading investment bank has lost her case.

Katharina Tofeji brought an action for sex discrimination, victimization and constructive dismissal against BNP Paribas on the grounds of the way she was treated following her return to work after maternity leave.

Ms. Tofeji's solicitor, London-based Samantha Mangwana, who works at Russell Jones & Walker, described the failure of the case in a statement as, "a missed opportunity to deal with the widespread sex discrimination in the City that still persists," and said she and her client were looking into the possibility of an appeal.
