A class-action lawsuit has been filed against Saporito Finishing alleging violation of the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act, the Cook County Record reports. Plaintiff Elliot Smart alleges the metal-finishing company made employees clock in and out of work using their fingerprints without obtaining permission or consent as required by law. Smart also claims the company never informed him how the company stores the information. He is seeking damages of $1,000 to $5,000 per violation. The lawsuit was filed just weeks after a similar class-action lawsuit was filed against a Chicago blood test laboratory.
