The Lawsuit

Former DXC Technologies executive vice president Stephen Hilton, who was once in the CEO succession plan and in charge of 120,000 employees, was fired from DXC in July 2018.

Hilton sued the company last week in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, accusing the company of seven counts of breach of contract, and seeking $14.3 million as well as damages after DXC failed to pay him $20 million in severance benefits and stock options.

Hilton accused DXC CEO Mike Lawrie of ordering changes to the vesting dates on Hilton’s stock options “without contractual or other legal authority.” He said Lawrie had earlier boasted of preventing stock option payments to the man Hilton replaced, according to the complaint.

DXC has not responded in court, but issued a statement last week saying Hilton’s suit has “no merit.”

The 36-page complaint goes into great detail about Hilton’s time at DXC, Lawrie’s management style, and how the CEO is allegedly viewed by other executives at the company.
