Update on the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act

Recently, an employee filed a complaint in Cook County alleging his employers, Elite Staffing Inc. and Visual Pak Co., collected and stored his fingerprints without his permission. If true, this would be a direct violation of the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA).  As noted in previous newsletters, we have been expecting an increase in such suits given Illinois’ recent adoption of stricter laws protecting an employee’s biometric information.  The attorneys at Rock Fusco & Connelly can keep your business up to date on BIPA compliance and all of its nuances, including the strict notice requirements to employees, and the storage and transfer of biometric data.
