KPMG Canada settles overtime lawsuit

Claim understood to have cost the firm CAN$10m (£4.9m)

KPMG has settled an overtime lawsuit in Canada, understood to have cost the
firm CAN$10m (£4.9m).

The
National Post
reported that the firm had settled the class action, brought
by litigation firm Juroviesky and Ricci and the employment law firm Ball and
Alexander.

The overtime issue has hit several Canadian firms and companies, with PwC
announcing its own settlement with staff even without being sued.

Justice Paul Perrell of the Ontario Superior Court approved the proposed KPMG
settlement last week, the paper reported.

KPMG initially prepared a redress plan, cutting out the lawyers, but was
forced back into a legal process in the end.
