Fluker v Glanbia Performance Nutrition, Inc.

In the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois

County Department, Chancery Division

Case No. 2017-CH-12993

The Final Approval Hearing has been re-set by the Court to August 25, 2020 at 11:00 AM. The hearing will be held via Zoom, with no in-person appearance. Please see the "Order Re-setting Final Approval Hearing", available in "Case Documents," for details.

If you are a current or former employee of Glanbia Performance Nutrition (NA), Inc., formerly known as Glanbia Performance Nutrition, Inc. or Glanbia Performance Nutrition (Manufacturing), Inc. that used a finger scanner time clock at one of their facilities in the State of Illinois between September 26, 2012 and May 12, 2020, you may be entitled to a payment from a class action settlement.  

An Illinois State Court authorized this Notice.  

This is not a solicitation from a lawyer.

A Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit between Glanbia Performance Nutrition, Inc. (“Defendant”) and some of its former Illinois employees. The suit alleges that the Defendant 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. 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 Glanbia Performance Nutrition (NA), Inc, formerly known as Glanbia Performance Nutrition, Inc., or Glanbia Performance Nutrition (Manufacturing), Inc. (together, “Glanbia”) that used a finger scanner time clock at a facility operated by Glanbia in the State of Illinois between September 26, 2012 and May 12, 2020. 

If you’re eligible and the Court approves the Settlement, a check will automatically be mailed to you for approximately $800, which accounts for payment of the costs—if approved by the Court—of administrative expenses and legal fees. Glanbia has also agreed to comply with BIPA in the future. 

These rights and options - and deadlines to exercise them - are explained in the Notice in the Documents section on this Settlement Website.

The Court in charge of this case still has to decide whether to grant final approval of the Settlement.  Payments will only be made after the Court grants final approval of the Settlement and after any appeals are resolved.
