Kusinski, et al. v ADP BIPA Settlement Class Action Website

Kusinski, et al. v. ADP, LLC, Case No. 2017-CH-12364
(Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois)

PLEASE READ THE NOTICE CAREFULLY. YOU MAY BE ENTITLED TO A CASH PAYMENT FROM A CLASS ACTION SETTLEMENT IF YOU SCANNED YOUR FINGER OR HAND ON AN ADP-BRANDED FINGER-SCAN OR HAND-SCAN TIMECLOCK IN THE STATE OF ILLINOIS BETWEEN JUNE 5, 2013 AND  NOVEMBER 6, 2020.

A state court authorized notice of a proposed class action settlement.

This is not a solicitation from a lawyer and is not notice of a lawsuit against you.

A Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit between ADP, LLC (“Defendant” or “ADP”) and certain individuals who scanned their finger or hand on ADP-branded finger-scan or hand-scan timeclocks. The lawsuit alleges that ADP violated an Illinois law called the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act (“BIPA”) when it allegedly collected individuals’ biometric data when they used ADP finger-scan and hand-scan timeclocks without complying with the law’s requirements. The case is Kusinski, et al. v. ADP, LLC, Case No. 2017-CH-12364, currently pending in the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois, Chancery Division. The proposed Settlement is not an admission of wrongdoing by ADP, and ADP denies that it violated the law. The Court has not decided who is right or wrong. Rather, to avoid the time, expense, and uncertainty of litigation, the Parties have agreed to settle the lawsuit. The Settlement has been preliminarily approved by a court in Chicago, Illinois.

You are included in the Settlement if you scanned your finger or hand on an ADP-branded finger-scan or hand-scan timeclock in the State of Illinois between June 5, 2013 and November 6, 2020.

If the Court approves the Settlement, members of the Class who submit valid claims will receive an equal, or pro rata, share of a $25,000,000 Settlement Fund that ADP has agreed to establish. Each individual who submits a valid claim will receive a portion of this fund, after all notice and administration costs, the incentive awards, and attorneys’ fees—if approved by the Court—have been paid. Payments are estimated to be $250, but could be more or less, depending on the number of valid Claim Forms submitted.
