A Missouri jury awarded a former UBS Financial Services Inc. employee $10.6 million in damages last month after she was fired for complaining about sexual harassment on the job. Following a trial in Jackson County Court, the jury awarded the Plaintiff, Carla Ingraham, $350,000 for the sexual harassment, $242,000 for the retaliatory firing and $10 million in punitive damages. UBS said it does not tolerate sexual harassment of any kind against an employee. But the jury obviously didn’t agree with the company and ruled for the employee.
