About This Case

Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois 

LaBarre v. Ceridian HCM., Inc., Case No. 19-CH-06489 

IF YOU SCANNED YOUR FINGER ON A CERIDIAN-BRANDED TIMECLOCK WHILE IN THE STATE OF ILLINOIS BETWEEN MAY 28, 2014 AND MAY 17, 2022, YOU MAY BE ENTITLED TO CLAIM A PAYMENT FROM A CLASS ACTION SETTLEMENT.   

 This is an official court notice. You are not being sued. This is not an ad for a lawyer.  

  • A Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit between Ceridian HCM, Inc. (“Defendant” or “Ceridian”) and certain workers who scanned their finger on a Ceridian-branded timeclock in the State of Illinois. The lawsuit claims that Ceridian violated an Illinois law called the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act (“BIPA”) when it collected individuals’ biometric data when they used a Ceridian-branded timeclock with a finger scanner without complying with the law’s requirements. Ceridian denies Plaintiff’s allegations, denies violation of any law and denies all liability. The Court has not decided who is right or wrong. The Settlement has been preliminarily approved by a state court in Chicago, Illinois.
  • You may be included in the Settlement if you are an individual who scanned your finger in Illinois on a timeclock issued, leased or sold by Ceridian, and for whom any alleged biometric data relating to that scan was shared with or stored by Ceridian, between May 28, 2014 and May 17, 2022, subject to certain exclusions detailed below (see FAQ 5). These systems are common among many employers of hourly workers. If you received a notice of this Settlement in the mail or by e-mail, our records indicate that you are a Settlement Class member and 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, Class Members who submit valid Claim Forms on or before the Claims Deadline of September 30, 2022 will receive an equal, or pro rata, share of a $3,493,074 Settlement Fund that Ceridian has agreed to establish, after all notice and administration costs, incentive award, and attorneys’ fees have been paid. Individual payments to Class Members who submit a valid Claim Form are estimated to be $790 to $1,580, but could be more or less depending on the number of valid claims submitted.
  • Unless otherwise specified, all capitalized terms used in this Notice are those used in the Class Action Settlement Agreement, which can be found in the “Court Documents” section of this settlement website, www.CeridianBIPASettlement.com
  • Please read this notice carefully. Your legal rights are affected whether you act, or don’t act.
