Muslim twins’ discrimination case could lead to record payout

A major test of the UK’s religious discrimination laws next week could see a record compensation payout, according to reports.


A pair of Muslim twins are taking City firm Tradition Securities and Futures to an employment tribunal on a series of allegations.


The French nationals claim bosses at the company took Jewish clients from them, and gave them to non-Muslim colleagues.


They are said to be seeking damages that could run into millions of pounds for religious and racial discrimination, among other claims.


The sisters worked as brokers at Tradition Securities and Futures from 2002 to 2004, when they transferred to the firm’s London office for two years before quitting.


They are said to have been on total pay in excess of £100,000 per year each. The case at the Central London Employment Tribunal is expected to begin on Monday, and is scheduled to last 55 days.


Tradition Securities and Futures denies the charges.
