About The Settlement

What is this lawsuit about?

The lawsuit alleges that Providence violated an Illinois law called the Biometric Information Privacy Act (“BIPA”) by, among other things, collecting Illinois employees’ finger scan data on a time keeping system without obtaining their informed consent. Providence denies any wrongdoing and maintains that it has not violated any laws. 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.

The settlement includes all individuals who worked for or are currently working for Resthaven Illiana Christian Convalescent Home, Inc. d/b/a Providence Life Services, Timothy Place d/b/a Park Place of Elmhurst, NFP Providence Operations, LLC, Park Place Christian Community of St. John, Inc., Christian Living Campus, and/or NFP Providence Management and Development Company Incorporated who had their fingerscan and/or fingerprint and/or associated biometric data scanned, captured, possessed, obtained, converted, collected, shared, taken, transmitted, used, stored, disclosed, re-disclosed, disseminated or otherwise used by the timekeeping systems used at any of the above facilities in the State of Illinois from February 13, 2014 to October 18, 2019.
