IF YOU ARE OR WERE EMPLOYED BY HHS IN THE STATE OF ILLINOIS BETWEEN NOVEMBER 30, 2015 AND NOVEMBER 30, 2020, AND HAD YOUR BIOMETRIC IDENTIFIERS AND/OR BIOMETRIC INFORMATION COLLECTED, CAPTURED, RECEIVED, OR OTHERWISE OBTAINED OR DISCLOSED BY HHS OR ITS AGENT(S), YOU MAY BE ENTITLED TO A PAYMENT FROM A CLASS ACTION SETTLEMENT.
What Is This Settlement About?
A Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit against Hospital Housekeeping Systems, LLC (“HHS”). The class action lawsuit involves whether HHS unlawfully collected, captured, received, or otherwise disclosed its Illinois employees’ Biometric Identifiers and/or Biometric Information through its finger clock-in system. HHS denies the claims in the lawsuit, denies that it did anything wrong, and denies that class certification is warranted or appropriate. The Court did not resolve any claims or defenses, and the parties have agreed to settle the dispute solely to avoid the cost and uncertainty of continued litigation.
Who Is Included In the Settlement?
You are included in the class if you are or were employed by HHS in the state of Illinois between November 30, 2015 and November 30, 2020, and had your biometric identifiers and/or biometric information collected, captured, received, or otherwise obtained or disclosed by HHS or its agent(s).
How Do I Get a Payment?
Current employees included in the Settlement will receive a $950 payment from the Settlement Fund and former employees will be eligible to receive up to a $950 payment from the Settlement Fund. If you are a former HHS employee, you must submit a timely and properly completed Claim Form no later than October 7, 2021 to receive up to a $950 payment.
