Final Individual Relief Awards Lists

On September 19, 2017, the Court held a Fairness Hearing on Individual Relief, during which the Court considered the United States’ proposed relief determinations for individuals who submitted Interest-in-Relief Forms and objections to those determinations.

The Court approved the Final Individual Relief Awards Lists on September 22, 2017. The Final Back Pay Awards List identifies each claimant whom the Court determined is eligible for back pay and the amount of back pay to be awarded. The Final Priority Hire Claimant List identifies each claimant whom the Court determined is eligible to pursue priority hiring relief.

On October 2, 2017, each claimant whom the Court determined to be eligible for individual relief was sent a Notice of Individual Relief Award via mail and email. Claimants were also provided an Acceptance of Individual Relief and Release of Claims form and required Tax Withholding Forms.

In order to receive the individual relief for which the Court determined the claimant to be eligible, the claimant must fully execute the Acceptance of Individual Relief and Release of Claims form and the required tax withholding forms, and return them by mail or email to GCG by November 1, 2017. Failure to return fully executed forms by this date may result in the claimant forfeiting relief.
