Under the settlement, Costco will make certain changes to its promotion process for AGM and GM positions. In addition, the settlement establishes a claims process through which class members may file a claim and an arbitrator will decide whether they were denied an AGM or GM promotion because of their gender. The settlement creates an $8 million fund from which any successful claimants will be paid.
