The biggest sex discrimination claim yet filed with a British employment tribunal was dramatically withdrawn yesterday.
Claire Bright, the former head of asset and liability management in the treasury department at HBOS, was seeking £11m from the banking group after filing sex discrimination and victimisation claims last December.
But yesterday the bank issued a statement saying all the claims had been dropped and no compensation was being paid to Ms Bright, who is no longer working at HBOS, where she oversaw a budget of £140m.
The statement said: “HBOS can confirm that the Employment Tribunal claims brought against it by Claire Bright have been withdrawn.
