Sex Banker who had Sex at work numerous times wants his job back
A former Bank of Montreal manager who was fired for having sex several times with a female employee during work during 5 year period hours wants his job back.
Banker suspended numerous time because he had consensual sex with an assistant manager.
Payne was dismissed for acting inappropriately on bank property, breaching the bank code of ethics and the institution had “lost trust and confidence in him.”
He was given a four-month suspension.
The bank sought and obtained a judical review in the Federal Court of Canada to block the reinstatement of Payne.
Federal Court Judge Donald Rennie last month ordered a review of the adjudicator’s decision, which he set aside.
Rennie said Payne returned to the Woodstock branch after being transferred to continue having sex with the employee on bank premises.
He said the bank “needed to be able to rely on his trustworthiness and good judgment.”
“Given that Payne engaged in sexual relations with (employee) during business hours, the bank suffered lost hours and productivity of two employees,” the court ruled, adding Payne denied the affair twice when asked by bank investigators.
Payne’s lawyer Paul Brooks, of London, Ont., said he will determine sometime this week if an appeal will be filed in Federal Court to determine if Payne can win his job back.
