A Deutsche Bank contractor in London has demonstrated the worst sort of behaviour while working from home.
The 52 year-old electronic trading strategist reportedly waved a soiled toilet brush in his wife's face and kicked her in the shin after she criticized his home schooling. He has admitted assault and been sentenced to 120 hours of unpaid community work.
The trading strategist, who was a contractor at Deutsche rather than a full time employee and who has only worked at Deutsche Bank for 10 months, said he had been under a lot of stress. Deutsche Bank told a British paper that the matter is being looked into.
The strategist has reportedly moved out of his family home in London's Battersea. Deutsche Bank staff began returning to the bank's office in Frankfurt in May 2020. Staff are expected to return to the office in London later this summer.
