The Goldman Sachs banker who sued her former employer over claims of discrimination has settled with the bank out of court, it was confirmed this morning.
Ms Sonia Pereiro-Mendez, who failed to turn up for her tribunal against Goldman today at the Central London Employment Tribunal, left a tribe of journalists and photographers bemused for several hours after the hearing was suddenly postponed, sparked rumours of an out of court settlement.
Rumours of a settlement were confirmed at 12:30 when the claim was formally dismissed.
Richard Leiper, representing Ms Pereiro-Mendez, said the parties "had resolved the claim". The statement was confirmed by Daniel Stilitz, representing Goldman Sachs.
The ex-Goldman Sachs exec claims she had been discriminated against for being a woman, and said the discrimination got worse after she got pregnant.
