Case Summary

On June 2, 2011, a female former manager filed this putative class action lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York against KPMG LLP, a large accounting and professional services firm. The plaintiff asserted claims of gender discrimination under the Equal Pay Act, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, and state and local laws. Represented by private counsel, she sought permanent injunctive relief and damages for gender-based employment discrimination. The case was as…

On June 2, 2011, a female former manager filed this putative class action lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York against KPMG LLP, a large accounting and professional services firm. The plaintiff asserted claims of gender discrimination under the Equal Pay Act, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, and state and local laws. Represented by private counsel, she sought permanent injunctive relief and damages for gender-based employment discrimination. The case was assigned to Judge Jesse M. Furman.

In September 2011 and in May 2016, the plaintiff joined claims with several other former and current female employees at KPMG. The plaintiffs ultimately requested class certification for: “all female exempt Client Service and Support Professionals, including but not limited to Associates, Senior Associates, Managers, Senior Managers/Directors and Managing Directors…who are, or have been, employed by KPMG nationwide during the applicable liability period until the date of judgment.” The plaintiffs also brought analogous claims under New York City and New York state laws and sought to certify a New York subclass.

The plaintiffs claimed that KPMG had engaged in a pattern and practice of gender discrimination stemming from policies that lacked transparency and fairness. In total, the complaint alleged nineteen counts of employment discrimination on behalf of different combinations of named and putative class plaintiffs.

Specifically, the plaintiffs alleged the following on behalf of the nationwide class:

  1. pay discrimination, promotion discrimination, and pregnancy and caregiving discrimination in violation of Title VII;
  2. denial of equal pay for equal work under the Equal Pay Act.
They also alleged the following on behalf of the New York subclass:
  1. pay discrimination, promotion discrimination, and pregnancy and caregiving discrimination in violation of the New York State Human Rights Law and the New York City Human Rights Law;
  2. denial of equal pay for equal work under the New York State Equal Pay Acts.
Finally, the named plaintiffs pursued individual claims for retaliation in violation of Title VII and New York City and New York state laws; pregnancy discrimination in violation of the Family and Medical Leave Act; and race discrimination in violation of 42 U.S.C. §1981.

On February 7, 2013, the court granted the KPMG’s motion to strike class claims under New York State and New York City laws that were brought on behalf of plaintiffs who neither worked nor lived in the relevant jurisdictions. The court also dismissed some individual counts of discrimination, but denied KPMG’s motion with respect to all other counts. 925 F. Supp. 2d 453.

The case was reassigned to Judge Lorna G. Schofield in March 2013. On July 8, 2014, the court granted the plaintiffs’ motion for conditional certification of the class. 2014 WL 3298884. On September 4, 2015, the court granted the plaintiffs’ motion for equitable tolling of the statute of limitations. (Under the principle of equitable tolling, the court has discretion to suspend the statute of limitations period in certain situations to prevent an inequitable outcome.) The court adjusted the limitations period to cover all claims from March 2009–March 2012, and to cover all class-action plaintiffs who had opted in by April 2015. 2015 WL 5178400. The Equal Pay Act claims consisted of 1,112 opt-in plaintiffs.

However, on November 30, 2018, the court held that the plaintiffs could not meet the requirements for class certification in light of the Supreme Court’s decision in Wal-Mart v. Dukes, which made it extremely difficult for a gender discrimination suit to proceed as a class action where the discriminatory treatment was the product of local supervisors exercising their discretion in awarding pay and promotions. The district court found that the plaintiffs here could not show a common mode of decision-making by supervisors that would warrant class certification with respect to the Title VII claims and that the plaintiffs had not shown that members of the opt-in class for the Equal Pay Act claims worked for a “single establishment” and were all “similarly situated.” The Court also denied class certification for the New York subclass. 2018 WL 6264853.

The plaintiffs appealed the district court’s decision, but on March 19, 2019, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals (Judges Rosemary Pooler, Denny Chin, and Richard Eaton) denied the appeal, holding that immediate appeal was not warranted. The Second Circuit also granted a motion allowing non-parties to file an amicus brief.

Discovery continued in the district court. On September 27, 2019, KPMG filed a motion to dismiss certain Equal Pay Act claims. This motion was partially granted as to certain plaintiffs but not others on July 15, 2020. 2020 WL 4003367. This case is ongoing as of August 2020.
