Dear Class Member:

On Friday, we mailed you a check for your share of the settlement fund in the Pickett v. Exel Inc (d/b/a DHL Supply Chain) matter.

Due to a printer error, the routing number on the check was invalid, and the check may be returned if cashed.  If you have not already attempted to cash your original check, please do not cash the check that was dated October 20, 2023.  We will be mailing a replacement check dated October 25, 2023 to you tomorrow, if your original check has not already cleared.  Please deposit the October 25 replacement check once it is received.

If you have already attempted to deposit your original check and had it returned after the fact, and if you incurred any bank fees as a result of this error, please send us a copy of these fees to and we will reimburse you for any bank expenses that you incurred.

We apologize for the error and any inconvenience that this may cause.

Court Documents

If you received a conditional employment offer from DHL Supply Chain and were denied employment based, at least in part, on criminal history or failure to fully disclose criminal history between January 1, 2016 and December 31, 2021, you may be eligible to receive money from a settlement.

  • This lawsuit alleges that DHL Supply Chain violated the law by using a background check policy that disproportionately screened out African American and Hispanic applicants for employment.
  • You can read the Notice for additional details about the Settlement. You can also get additional information by contacting the Settlement Administrator.
  • DHL Supply Chaindenies that it violated the law. The two sides disagree about whether DHL Supply Chain’s use of background checks in hiring violated the law. The parties, however, have agreed to settle the lawsuit through a Court-supervised settlement.
SUBMIT A CLAIM If you are African American or Hispanic (solely or in combination with other races), applied for a non-exempt position with DHL Supply Chain, and received a conditional offer that was rescinded, at least in part, because of information disclosed in a background check or because of failure to disclose your criminal history between January 1, 2016 and December 31, 2021, you may complete the enclosed Claim Form and certify that you are eligible to receive payment from the Settlement.
DO NOTHING If you meet the above criteria and you do nothing, you will not receive any payment and will not be able to sue DHL Supply Chain separately about the same legal claims in this lawsuit.
If you wish to exclude yourself (“opt out”) from the Settlement, you must follow the directions outlined in the notice. If you request exclusion, you will not be eligible to receive payment and cannot object to the settlement. Your exclusion request must be postmarked no later than June 26, 2023.
OBJECT You may write to the Court about why you believe the Settlement is not fair and reasonable. You must follow the directions outlined in the Notice, and object in writing in order to appear at the Fairness Hearing to speak to the Court about the fairness of the Settlement. Your written objection must be postmarked no later than June 26, 2023.
