$900,000 WorkWell Biometric Fingerprint Class Action Settlement

January 13, 2020:    A settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit about individuals that used Workwell
brand, known as uAttend and/or Citadel, finger or facial scanners for employee timekeeping
purposes. The lawsuit alleges that Workwell and the employers that used their scanners
violated an Illinois law called the Biometric Information Privacy Act (“BIPA”) by collecting
employees’ fingerprints or facial scans on time clocks in Illinois without complying with the
law’s requirements. Workwell and certain employers covered in this Settlement (the
“Participating Employers”) deny any wrongdoing and maintain that they have not violated any
laws. You can find out if your employer is part of the settlement below. The settlement does
not establish who is correct, but rather is a compromise to end the lawsuit and avoid the
uncertainties and expenses associated with ongoing litigation.
