Biometric Data

Fingerprint Scan

LCS Communications, Inc. and Fairrington, LLC are settling a class action alleging that they did not follow Illinois law when taking palm, hand, or finger scans for timekeeping purposes. The Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act sets rules that must be obeyed when a company must provide when collecting, storing, and sharing biometric information.

Fingerprint Scan

If someone steals your credit card or debit card number, you can cancel the card and get a new one. But what can you do if someone steals your fingerprints? Only a few states have laws on biometric data collection. The complaint for this class action alleges that Schenker, Inc. violated the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA).

Hand Scan

Illinois is one of the few states that has passed a Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA), beginning to regulate the collection and storage of biometric data. The complaint for this class action alleges that Superior Health Linens, LLC (SHL) and Automatic Data Processing, Inc. (ADP) have violated that law in the collection of data for SHL employees.
