Mazurkiewicz v. Mid City Nissan, Inc.

Case No. 2018-CH-09798

NOTICE OF PROPOSED CLASS ACTION SETTLEMENT
Mazurkiewicz v. Mid City Nissan, Inc., 2018-CH-09798
(Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois)


If you used a finger scanning or face scanning timekeeping system at a Mid City Nissan facility in the State of Illinois between August 1, 2013 and April 3, 2018, you may be entitled to a payment from a class action settlement.


An Illinois State Court authorized this Notice. You are not being sued.
The Notice is not a solicitation from a lawyer.


• A Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit between Mid City Nissan, Inc. ("Mid City NIssan" or “Defendant”) and some of its current and former Illinois employees. The suit alleges that Defendant violated an Illinois law called the Biometric Information Privacy Act (“BIPA”) by collecting employees’ fingerprints and/or faceprints on time clocks in Illinois without obtaining their informed written consent. Defendant 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 the Settlement if you are a current or former employee of Mid City Nissan, Inc. that used a finger scanner or a face scanner time clock at a facility operated by Mid City Nissan in the State of Illinois between August 1, 2013 and April 3, 2018. Some exceptions apply, including, but not limited to, (i) individuals who were or are in the bargaining units of the Excavating, Grading, Asphalt, Private Scavengers and Recyclers, Automobile Salesroom Garage Attendants, Linen and Laundry and Machinery, Scrap Iron, Steel and Metal Trade Chauffeurs, Handlers, Helpers and Alloy Fabrications, Local Union No. 731, affiliated with the International Brotherhood of Teamster, and (ii) individuals who were or are in the bargaining units of  the Automobile Mechanics’ Local 701, International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, AFL-CIO, of Chicago and vicinity. All exceptions are detailed In the full Notice.


• If you’re eligible and the Court approves the Settlement, a check will automatically be mailed to you for approximately $725, which accounts for payment of the costs—if approved by the Court—of administrative expenses and legal fees. Mid City Nissan has also agreed to comply with BIPA in the future.
