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”.

Ex-Goldman banker claims he was ‘fired for whistleblowing’

Goldman Sachs

(Reuters) — A former London-based Goldman Sachs banker alleges he was unfairly dismissed with a “woeful” lack of proper procedure after whistleblowing on 10 occasions and that he was forced to deal with “vile and bullying language.”

Thomas Doyle, the former EMEA head of synthetic swap sales, alleges he was fired in 2021 with no warning letter or proper performance management and was told he was “causing disruption and conflict,” a court document seen by Reuters on Monday showed.

Mr. Doyle, who says he joined Goldman in December 2018 with an exemplary market reputation, named Goldman Sachs International and four senior Goldman bankers in a lawsuit being heard in the Central London employment tribunal. Employment lawsuits come to trial relatively rarely in London, as the vast majority are settled before they come to court.

A Goldman Sachs spokesperson dismissed the allegations as unfounded and said the case would be “resolutely contested.”

Mr. Doyle declined to comment.

The banker alleges he was dismissed in 2021 shortly after receiving a $218,223 bonus after raising a series of regulatory red flags with senior and compliance colleagues because he thought the bank had failed, or risked failing, to treat customers fairly and provide suitable advice.

Mr. Doyle also alleges he and others were repeatedly shouted at, that a managing partner told him he was fabricating information when he complained that he and his team were being excluded at work and that he was sworn at five times in one meeting at least.
