Lloyd v. Xanitos, Inc.

Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois

Case No. 2018-CH-15351

If you are a current or former employee or independent contractor of Xanitos, Inc. that used a finger scanner time clock in the State of Illinois between October 19, 2013 and January 24, 2019, a class action settlement may affect your rights.


  • A Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit between Xanitos, Inc. ("Defendant" or "Xanitos") and some of its former Illinois employees. The suit alleges that Xanitos violated an Illinois law called the Biometric Information Privacy Act ("BIPA") by collecting employees' fingerprints on time clocks in Illinois without obtaining their informed written consent. Xanitos 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.

  • You are included in this Settlement if you are a current or former employee or independent contractor of Xanitos, Inc. that used a finger scanner time clock in the State of Illinois between October 19, 2013 and January 24, 2019.

  • If you're eligible and the Court approves the Settlement, a check will automatically be mailed to you for approximately $750, which accounts for payment of the costs - if approved by the Court - of administrative expenses and legal fees. Xanitos has also agreed to comply with the BIPA in the future.
