What is this lawsuit about?
The individuals who brought the Lawsuit, known as “the Plaintiffs,” allege that PwC discriminated against them and other applicants aged 40 and older by not hiring them when they applied for Associate, Experienced Associate, and/or Senior Associate positions in PwC’s Tax or Assurance lines of client service from September 8, 2013 through January 21, 2020 (for the Settlement Class) and October 18, 2013 through January 21, 2020 (for the Settlement Collective). PwC disputes these allegations, and the Parties agree this Settlement is not an admission of liability.
