Lawsuit says firing was retaliation

NEW YORK — A former employee is suing Deutsche Bank, saying he was fired in retaliation for raising questions about problems with the bank’s systems and charges that were erroneously slapped on some customers as a result.

Gary DeDilectis, who worked in operations, filed the lawsuit against the bank Wednesday in US District Court in Manhattan. Deutsche Bank spokesman Duncan King said the claims are ‘‘without merit.’’

DeDilectis said he was fired in January 2012. The bank refused to give him a reason, he said, though he asked multiple times.

DeDilectis said that around August 2010, he noticed operational problems plaguing the bank. Among them: The bank failed to invest adequately in its systems, causing outages. As a result, paper statements were sometimes mailed to the wrong address or the wrong customer, and the bank failed to keep money for its own trading separate from customers’ money, he said.

DeDilectis said he became ‘‘increasingly vocal’’ about his concerns, and ‘‘repeatedly informed’’ his managers and others about problems he saw. His concerns were ignored, he said.

He’s asking for his job back, for back pay, and for his firing to be scrubbed from his record, as well as monetary damages for ‘‘emotional distress and loss of reputation.’’
