Lopez-McNear v. Superior Health Linens, LLC

United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois

Case No. 19-cv-2390 

IF YOU USED A HAND SCANNING TIME CLOCK AT A SUPERIOR HEALTH LINENS FACILITY IN THE STATE OF ILLINOIS BETWEEN FEBRUARY 28, 2014 AND JANUARY 12, 2021, A CLASS ACTION SETTLEMENT MAY AFFECT YOUR RIGHTS.

• A Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit between Superior Health Linens, LLC (“Defendant” or “SHL”) and some of its current and former Illinois employees. The suit claims that SHL violated an Illinois law called the Biometric Information Privacy Act (“BIPA”) by collecting employees’ handprints on time clocks in Illinois without obtaining their informed written consent. SHL denies any wrongdoing and says that it has not violated any laws. The Settlement does not establish who is right or wrong, but rather is a compromise to end the lawsuit and avoid the uncertainties and expenses that come with continuing on in court.   

• You are included in the Settlement if you are a current or former employee of SHL that used a hand scanner time clock at a facility in the State of Illinois between February 28, 2014 and January 12, 2021. Some exceptions to participating apply. For example, persons who were or are in the bargaining units of any union while working at SHL, or persons who entered into a separate settlement with SHL are not included. All exceptions are detailed in FAQ 5

• If you’re eligible and the Court approves the Settlement, a check will automatically be mailed to you for approximately $620, which includes the payment of the costs, administration expenses, and legal fees. SHL has also agreed to comply with BIPA in the future.
