Class action lawsuit against PwC California for excluding unlicensed staff from overtime to go ahead

A class action lawsuit against PricewaterhouseCoopers for misclassifying
auditors without CPA licenses as exempt from overtime can go ahead, a federal
court in California has ruled.

The lead plaintiffs, two former PwC employees, contend the firm should pay
overtime and other benefits to all unlicensed associates and senior associates,
writes CFO.com.

The claim covers PwC’s operation in California and its employees in its main
business lines — assurance, tax, and advisory.

At issue in the case is whether the unlicensed employees exercised
independent judgment and discretion in their duties and whether they performed
intellectual work. That will now be decided at trial with respect to the
auditing associates.
