Discount broker Charles Schwab has been ordered by the New York Stock Exchange to compensate a former employee for "emotional distress" caused by the firm's handling of her computer, as well as other problems, The Wall Street Journal reports.

The former employee, Rose Mary Finocchi, was also awarded $106,500 in lost wages for nearly five years and $20,000 to cover the costs of the arbitration hearing, the exchange ruled. She will received another $150,000 from Schwab for her legal fees. Finocchi's request for punitive damages was denied.
