‘Whistleblower’ claims unfair dismissal from banking job

Former PwC employee claims she was sacked after discovering accounts discrepancy

A Glasgow employment tribunal is hearing unfair dismissal claims brought by a
whistleblower and former PricewaterhouseCoopers employee against the National
Australia Group Europe – owner of Clydesdale and
Yorkshire Banks – after she was sacked
soon after uncovering an alleged £128m discrepancy in bank accounts.

Amy Davies, who is claiming unfair dismissal under the
Public Interest
Disclosure Act
was fired just weeks after uncovering the discrepancy the
tribunal heard yesterday, The Scotsman
reported.

Davies, 33, joined National Australia Group Europe on a salary of more than
£65,000 a year, but was sacked a year later for ‘behavioural’’ issues. She told
the tribunal how the banking group persuaded her to leave a position with PwC.

She claims she was unfairly dismissed after uncovering and revealing the
extent of the inconsistencies in bank records.

She told the Glasgow tribunal: ‘I have had my reputation ruined. It wasn’t
just losing my job. National then set on a path which ruined my reputation. This
is not all about money. My name has been damaged significantly so I can’t get
the same opportunities I had before.’

“I haven’t done anything wrong. I did my job and I did it well. If you have
behavioural issues you are not awarded a pay rise.”
