Welcome to the US v. City of NY FDNY
Employment Discrimination Case Website

Please see below and FAQs 84-95 for information on payment of individual monetary relief awards for back pay and fringe benefits.

Important Update!

Fringe Benefits and Interest Award Payments: On August 5, fringe benefits and interest award payments were sent by first class US mail to claimants who timely submitted a completed “Acceptance of Individual Monetary Relief Award and Release of Claims” form (“Acceptance Form”). GCG emailed all claimants with email addresses on file to notify them after payments were sent.

Back Pay Awards: Aside from the 75 exceptions discussed below, the City issued all back pay awards on or before August 11, 2015, to eligible claimants listed on the Final Relief Awards List who timely submitted a complete “Acceptance of Individual Monetary Relief Award and Release of Claims” form.

If you are not a current FDNY employee, the City of New York mailed your check to your address on file via certified mail (or first class mail if your address is a post office box). If you are a current FDNY employee who receives his or her check by direct deposit, your back pay award check was sent via direct deposit. Current FDNY employees who are paid by physical check will receive the back pay award in the mail.

Payment was delayed to 10 deceased claimants, as well as the following 65 claimants identified by claimant number in the table below. For more information about the reasons for this delay, see FAQ 85.
