LONDON, Nov 1 (Reuters) - Swiss bank UBS will expand training for specialist staff investigating sexual misconduct claims, and introduce a confidential hotline to handle such allegations, according to an internal memo sent to staff and seen by Reuters on Thursday.
The changes follow an independent review by a law firm into how the bank handled accusations of sexual assualt made by a former junior trader.
The law firm’s review found “no fundamental errors” in how the bank had investigated the claims, the memo said.
A spokeswoman for UBS confirmed the contents of the memo and declined to comment further. (Reporting By Sinead Cruise, writing by Lawrence White, Editing by Silvia Aloisi)
