On March 21, 2019, Wigdor LLP filed a wrongful termination lawsuit on behalf of Rajnarind Kaur against Deutsche Bank A.G. (“Deutsche Bank”) alleging claims of discrimination on the basis of disability, race and national origin and retaliation. The lawsuit alleges that Ms. Kaur, an Indian Sikh woman who worked at Deutsche Bank in various roles and departments for over 8 years, was terminated after raising complaints of discrimination following her return from medical leave due to a serious brain tumor. When Ms. Kaur made multiple complaints of discrimination to Deutsche Bank’s Human Resources department, no action was taken to remedy the misconduct, and instead she was terminated in an act of unlawful retaliation, the Complaint alleges.

Statement of David E. Gottlieb, Partner at Wigdor LLP:
“This is yet another case where Deutsche Bank has mistreated an employee in a time of need. Ms. Kaur was harassed after her return from medical leave and tried to correct this behavior by reporting the discrimination to HR, only to be fired directly after she complained.”
