Wood Dale Memory Care, Inc.
A proposed settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit against
Wood Dale Memory Care, Inc. d/b/a The Radcliff (“Defendant”)
regarding timekeeping devices used by Defendant from March 6, 2015 through
December 15, 2021, which required employees to provide biometric information
(e.g. fingerprints etc.) for timekeeping purposes, allegedly in violation
of the Illinois’ Biometric Information Privacy Act (“BIPA”).
The case is entitled McClain, et al. v. Wood Dale Memory Care, Inc. d/b/a
The Radcliff, Case No. 2020 L 000280, pending in the Circuit Court of
the Eighteenth Judicial Circuit, DuPage County, Illinois. The proposed
settlement is not an admission of wrongdoing by Defendant, and Defendant
denies that it violated the law. The Court has not decided who is right
or wrong. Rather, to save the time, expense, and distraction of litigation,
the parties have agreed to settle the lawsuit. The settlement has been
preliminarily approved by a court in Wheaton, Illinois.
