PNC Employee Wins U-5 Expungement and Damages

A former broker at PNC sued PNC for a dirty U-5, alleging defamation, libel, misconduct, wrongful termination, and wrongdoing in connection with the termination of his employment.

A FINRA arbitration panel awarded him over $100,000, plus attorneys fees, and ordered his U-5 amended to state that his termination was arbitrary and capricious.

A significant win for the broker. Remember - your CRD Record is forever, and public. You need to make sure it stays clean, and you need to take action to protect and correct it.
