Witnesses begin testimony in Merrill Lynch sex discrimination case

The
high-profile Stephanie Villalba
sex discrimination case is set to enter its second day after reopening this
week.

Villalba, who is suing Merrill
Lynch where she used to work as a banker, is seeking around £7.5m in damages
for sex discrimination, victimisation, unfair dismissal and unequal pay.

Yesterday
at a Croydon Employment
Tribunal, Villalba’s
teamwork skills came under fire from Nicholas
Underhill,
counsel for Merrill Lynch.

The
American investment bank plans call up to 22 witnesses, including many senior
executives from its private client division.
