Many former branches of Montreal Trust and National Trust were rebranded " Scotiabank
Scotiabank
& Trust", and continue to operate as such. Controversies[edit] Wrongful dismissal lawsuit[edit] In June 2005, David Berry, a very successful Canadian Scotiabank trader who had built a $75M/year business in trading preferred shares was fired on the grounds that he had committed securities regulatory violations.[13] At the time, as part of a 20% direct drive deal, he was making more than double the CEO's salary and Scotiabank
Scotiabank
management had already taken steps to limit his compensation.[14] The regulatory violation allegations from his former employer, left him unemployable to Scotiabank's competitors despite the appeal of potentially adding more than $75M/year to their equity trading profits.[14] Documents delivered to the media showing that Scotiabank
Scotiabank
management had sought advice on terminating Berry prior to the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada
Canada
(IIROC) violation accusation, and the results of questioning during the IIROC inquiries strongly suggest that the securities charges were part of a plan by Scotiabank
Scotiabank
senior management to remove Berry from his position and simultaneously prevent him from becoming their competitor.[15] In a ruling on January 15, 2013, more than seven years after the initial accusation, a hearing panel of the IIROC dismissed all charges against Berry.[16][17] David Berry filed a $100M wrongful dismissal lawsuit against Scotiabank. As of January 2015, and nine years after Berry was terminated, Scotiabank
Scotiabank
settled with Berry for an undisclosed amount. Barry Critchley, who followed the story since its beginning, wrote an article on November 6, 2014, in which he believes Scotiabank's $55 million reported legal charges would likely be connected to the $100 million lawsuit; but it is unlikely to ever be known.[18] Unpaid overtime lawsuit[edit] In 2014, the bank reached a settlement in a class-action lawsuit that covered thousands of workers owed more than a decade of unpaid overtime. The lawsuit included 16,000 Scotiabank
Scotiabank
employees across Canada
Canada
who worked as personal banking officers, senior personal banking officers, financial advisors, and small business account managers from January 1, 2000, to December 1, 2013. The 2007 lawsuit was similar to a class-action filed by Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC) bank teller Dara Fresco of Toronto. Under terms of the settlement, employees received 1.5 times their standard wage at the time, but no interest. Scotiabank
Scotiabank
also paid legal fees of $10.45 million. Plaintiffs' counsels were David O'Connor of Roy O'Connor and Louis Sokolov of Sotos LLP.[19][20] Fraud in Mexico[edit] A 2001 investigation into the murder of Maru Oropesa, a Scotiabank branch manager in Mexico
Mexico
City revealed US$14 million missing from the branch. Initially, investigators found that Oropesa and Jaime Ross, her former boss, had illegally transferred US$5 million from client investment accounts. The money was eventually transferred to the United States
United States
where it was used to purchase three aircraft. As the investigation continued, officials found an additional $9 million missing and involvement of 16 other bank employees in the fraud.[21][22] Ross was convicted of fraud and money laundering for his role and sentenced to 15 years.[23] Scotiabank
Scotiabank
terminated the other 16 employees, but did not prosecute them.[21] Operating units[edit]
