Figueroa v. Kronos Inc.

Case No. 1:19-CV-01306 United States District Court Northern District of Illinois

If you scanned your finger on a Kronos-Brand timeclock in Illinois and had your finger-scan data hosted by Kronos between January 18, 2014 and March 20, 2022, you may be entitled to a payment from a class action settlement.

This is a court-authorized website. You are not being sued. This is not an ad for a lawyer.

• A proposed Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit between Kronos Incorporated (“Kronos” or “Defendant”) and individuals who scanned their fingers on Kronos-brand timeclocks at their jobs in Illinois and whose finger-scan data was hosted by Kronos between January 18, 2014 and March 20, 2022. The lawsuit claims that Kronos collected and stored biometric data from workers through Kronos-brand timeclocks when Kronos provided “cloud” hosting for their employers. The lawsuit claims these activities required compliance with an Illinois law called the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act, and that Kronos did not comply. Kronos denies these allegations and that the law applies to Kronos. The Court has not decided who is right or wrong. The Settlement has been preliminarily approved by a federal court in Chicago.

• You are included in the Settlement if you scanned your finger on a Kronos-brand timeclock at your job in Illinois and your finger-scan data was hosted by Kronos between January 18, 2014, and March 20, 2022. If you received a notice of the Settlement in the mail or by email, records indicate that you are included in the Settlement,  and you may submit a Claim Form online or by mail to receive a cash payment. 

• If the Court approves the Settlement, members of the Class who submit valid, timely and approved claims will receive an equal share of a $15,276,227 settlement fund that Kronos has agreed to create, after all notice and administration costs, incentive award, and attorneys’ fees have been paid. Individual payments to Settlement Class Members who submit a valid claim form are estimated to be $290-$580, depending on the number of approved claims.
