BIPA / Biometric Data

Privacy & Technology

Outten & Golden attorneys are knowledgeable in advising employees regarding their privacy rights in the workplace, including employers’ use and protection of biometric information. 

Biometric data take many forms, including fingerprints, voice prints, palm, vein and hand geometry, face recognition, and retinal scans. In Illinois, employers must inform their workers of their biometric data collection and storage policies and obtain written consent from each worker. Outten & Golden attorneys help employees understand what their rights are and can assist them when those privacy rights are breached.
