A banker in the United Kingdom has been awarded 2 million pounds by a tribunal in an equal pay lawsuit, Bloomberg reported.

Stacey Macken, who worked with French retail banking company BNP Paribas, complained that she had been paid much less than her male colleagues during her four-year stint, according to Financial Times.

Macken, after joining the company in 2013, discovered that she was paid 25 percent less than a male colleague in an identical role. The woman also said she received smaller bonuses and on complaining about the gap, she was treated unfairly by her managers, Financial Times reported.

The woman also said that she faced derogatory remarks during her tenure at BNP Paribas. On one occasion, her colleagues reportedly left a witch hat on her desk.
