Professional ban

TRB-2019-4249.

A bank employee filed two invoices totaling €1100 in private expenses at the bank, declaring them business expenses. She also filed five forged invoices totaling €40.000 on behalf of a company with which she was involved. She then transferred the money to her own private bank account.

The bank filed a complaint with the foundation. The Disciplinary Committee ruled that the transgressions constituted a serious breach of the banker's oath and santioned a professional ban of 18 months. The defendant's name was added to the foundation's registry that is accessible by all banks.
