(Reuters) - Barclays Capital Inc
The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority in the United States ordered Barclays Capital to pay Dong Kun Lee $2.1 million in damages in their award dated Nov 15.
According to regulatory filings, on July 30, 2012 Barclays dismissed Dong (Don) Kun Lee, a derivatives trader, for allegedly engaging "in communications involving inappropriate requests relating to Libor".
Lee accused the company of a breach of contract and violation of New York labor law among other things in a subsequent arbitration claim.
A London-based spokesman for Barclays Plc declined to comment.
Lee originally asked Barclays to pay about $5.3 million in damages, but later reduced his request to about $2.1 million.
Barclays Capital provides securities brokerage and financial advisory services and operates as a subsidiary of London-listed Barclays Plc
