Biometric Privacy

If your employer is forcing you to use fingerprints, handprints, facial recognition, or vocal identifiers at work, that information is also vulnerable to data breaches. The Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act sometimes called “BIPA,” offers you some protections, and provides for statutory damages up to $1,000 for negligent violations, and up to $5,000 for reckless or intentional violations. If your employer has not followed the requirements of BIPA, such as obtaining your written permission to store that information and letting you know how long they will be storing your biometric information, you may have a claim for damages against them.

If your employer is forcing you to use your biometric information and you believe they may not be following the requirements of BIPA, give us a call at (312) 626-3585. We can help you obtain the compensation you deserve.

Contact Edelman Combs Latturner & Goodwin, LLC at (312) 626-3585 to work with a Chicago data breach and privacy attorney.
