In the past two months, at least 32 class action lawsuits have been filed relating to biometric privacy. These suits target a number of industries – everything from companies in the restaurant and hospitality businesses to nursing homes and major social media giants. If you use biometric technology in your company, you need to make sure you are not the next to make the headlines.

Recently, and particularly in the state of Illinois, there has been an uptick in litigation related to the collection and retention of biometric information by businesses, If your company uses any form of biometric technology, such as a biometric timeclock, biometric package tracking or any kind of employee or customer facing biometric technology, you need to make sure you are in compliance with applicable law.
