Frequently Asked Questions
- Who does the settlement cover?
Covered individuals are applicants, ages 40 and older, who were denied Associate, Experienced Associate, or Senior Associate positions in the US anytime from October 2013 to the present and who had opted into the lawsuit by January 21, 2020, as well as those who applied to a covered position (Associate, Experienced Associate, and/or Senior Associate in PwC’s Tax or Assurance lines of service) between September 8, 2013 and January 21, 2020 in or from California and/or Michigan.
- What if I was impacted by PwC’s forced retirement at age 60?
While the complaint does not target forced retirement claims, it is possible that a forced retirement rule could lead to age discrimination in hiring by making the company less willing to bring on new hires who would be required to retire sooner than younger workers. Please call us if you were impacted by this policy.
- What if I worked for PwC but wasn’t promoted or was paid less than my peers?
Although these kinds of claims are not covered by the complaint in this case, they may be relevant to our challenge. Please call us if you would like to provide further information.
- What if I applied to a different company but have similar concerns?
We are investigating age discrimination by other companies. This lawsuit only covers PwC. Contact us if you would like to learn more about your rights.
- What if I reapplied to PwC after the settlement and believe that I was not hired due to age discrimination?
If you received money from the settlement, applied to PwC for a covered position during the period March 10, 2021 to June 10, 2022, and believe that you were not hired due to age discrimination, you may be entitled to additional money from the settlement. If you believe this may apply to you, you should contact Outten & Golden to learn more. You must provide documentation to Class Counsel to determine your eligibility for the additional payment on or before August 10, 2022.
